Abstract

This article describes the lexical resource DW-DGS – the first corpus-based digital dictionary of German Sign Language (DGS). Basic information is provided on dictionary type, context of compilation, sign representation in the product, metalanguage, dictionary content, information types displayed in entries, and dictionary structure. The article also provides an overview on data sources, methods, workflow procedures, and tools used in the lexicographic process. Challenges of making a corpus-based sign language dictionary and solutions developed for the DW-DGS are mentioned. The aim of this contribution is to provide an overview on the resource. It also serves as a starting point by referring to papers that describe the structures and procedures of the DW-DGS in more depth.
