ONLINE DICTIONARIES NGT

The Dutch Sign Centre maintains a large database with more than 19.000 sign records.

We have collected these data since the early 1990's and a large part of the signs have been recorded based on the work done within the Corpus Dictionary project in the early eighties, the KOMVA project.

From this database several dictionaries are available, online and via the app iSignNGT.
he largest online dictionary comntains 15.000 sign records: apart from a citationform of the sign, example sentences in NGT have been added as well as information on the translation into Dutch. This dictionary can be accessed by subscription.

A sample of the dictionary's content can be found on our site.

We work daily on theĀ  database, new signs are added every week.
The way in which we expand the dcitionary is explained in the videofilm in NGT.
