A conceptual approach in sign language classification for concepts network

Abstract : Most websites presuppose a conceptual equivalence between a written word and a sign. In such tools, signs which do not have strict written equivalent lexicons cannot be found.The collaborative website Ocelles project LSF/French tries to give the opportunity to obtain several signs for a unique concept, with the possibility of uploading a sign without being constrained by written language. Although word checking in a written text is quite easy, this is not the case for sign checking in a video. Today studies are carried out in the field of gesture recognition, but all the sign language linguistic parameters cannot be considered as such. Indeed, they have to be used simultaneously during communication interactions. Our approach based upon the semiological Cuxac model (Cuxac, 2000) and Thom morphogenesis theory (Thom, 1973), could help to find a sign in a sign dictionary without using any written language.
