Glossaries

Introduction

Glossaries are specialised dictionaries that contain domain-specific terminology and/or expressions. There are 32 glossaries in the CLARIN infrastructure. Most (22) of the glossaries are multilingual, accounting for 14 language combinations (e.g., English-Greek, English-French), while while 10 are monolingual, accounting for  6 languages (e.g., Dutch, English, Estonian, Greek, Slovenian, Swedish). In the vast majority of the cases, the glossaries can be directly downloaded from the national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.
