iLex - A tool for Sign Language Lexicography and Corpus Analysis

  title={iLex - A tool for Sign Language Lexicography and Corpus Analysis},
  author={Thomas Hanke},
This paper describes a tool that combines features found in empirical sign language lexicography and in sign language discourse transcription. It supports the user in lexicon building while working on the transcription of a corpus. While it tries to reach a certain level of compatibility with upcoming multimedia annotation tools, it offers a number of unique features considered essential due to the specific nature of sign languages.
