The main goal of the case study ‘a comparative study of European sign languages’ is to create a database with comparable multi-media recordings documenting sign languages as used in three European countries (Sweden, UK, and the Netherlands). This study should be regarded as a demonstration of how multi-media data can be documented and used on the internet to make them accessible for the whole scientific community, for deaf people themselves or for anyone interested in sign languages. These publicly available data collections are expected to contribute significantly to the systematic study of individual languages, but also the study of the similarities and differences between languages.
