From meaning to signs and back:Lexicography and the Swedish Sign Language Corpus
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the 5th Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages: Interactions between Corpus and Lexicon., 2012, 123-126 p.Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In this paper, we will present the advantages of having a reference dictionary, and how having a corpus makes dictionary making easier and more effective. It also gives a new perspective on sign entries in the dictionary, for example, if a sign uses one or two hands, or which meaning “genuine signs” have, and it helps find a model for categorization of polysynthetic signs that is not found in the dictionary. Categorizing glosses in the corpus work has compelled us to revisit the dictionary to add signs from the corpus that are not already in the dictionary and to improve sign entries already in the dictionary based on insights that have been gained while working on the corpus.
