Swedish Sign Language Dictionary

The Swedish Sign Language Dictionary is an online dictionary for Swedish Sign Language. The dictionary was created at the Department of Linguistics of Stockholm University.

The dictionary was first built as an online video representation of a printed dictionary (Hedberg, 1998) which was extended over the years. The Swedish Sign Language corpus as well as the Swedish Sign Language community are used to collect and document signs and lexical variation for the dictionary.
