Finnish Signbank

Finnish Signbank is a lexical database of Finnish Sign Language (FinSL) and Finland-Swedish Sign Language (FinSSL). It is developed by the Corpus Project of Finland’s Sign Languages (CFINSL) at the Sign Language Centre of the University of Jyväskylä together with the corpus and dictionary work of the Finnish Association of the Deaf.

The basic purpose of Finnish Signbank is to serve as a tool in annotating FinSL and FinSSL texts. Linguistic annotations are attached to video time codes, and the coded material can be used to create a corpus of sign language texts.
