Abstract

The paper deals with a monolingual (explanatory) and bilingual dictionary of the spoken and sign language, which in each of the languages provides grammatical, stylistic and semantic characteristics, contextual quotes, information about hyponyms and hypernyms, transcription, and audio/video recording (front-facing and sideview captures). The dictionary also serves as a basic didactic aid for teaching deaf and hearing users and their specialized work with academic texts at Masaryk University (MU) and for this reason it also, besides the basic vocabulary, includes specialized terminology of study programs provided at MU in the Czech sign language. Another aim of this dictionary is to build a centralized on-line dictionary of newly created terminology and the existing vocabulary.
