First ever Indian Sign Language dictionary is being created
January 24, 2017
A first ever Indian Sign language-ISL dictionary is being created and will be launched in March. The dictionary is being made by experts on ISL under a central government project.
The dictionary will be based on the sign language interpretations of words as used in India.
Almost 6,000 English and Hindi words that are used in daily life and legal, medical, technical and academic terms have already been added to the content.
Indian Sign Language Research and Training Centre (ISLRTC) is giving inputs in the project. The dictionary will contain some regional sign language representations as well.
Once the work is done, a conference of ISL experts will be arranged to make improvements in the dictionary. After their approval, the Sign language dictionary will be released.
