Sign Language


Scope Note

Sign (or signed) languages are principally used among members of what linguists call the “culturally deaf” communities. They rely on hand signs, facial expressions, body positions, motions and other physical signs (perhaps including mouthing the words) in order to communicate (Sign Languages, National Science Foundation).
