Sign Language:
What Sign Language Is Not

1. Sign Language is neither universal nor international. Each country's Deaf community develops its own Sign Language despite some similarities of grammatical features that are shared by all known-signed languages of the world. The way Deaf Americans may decide to name the world about them is different from the way the Deaf South Africans may do.

2. Different Sign Languages may have hand forms, which, in some instances, may be culturally unacceptable in other Sign Languages.

3. Some hand forms and combination of movements may be the same in two Sign Languages but the meanings could be completely different.

4. A signed exact spoken language that is, making a sign for each word in a spoken language e.g. English, Zulu, Xhosa is not Sign Languages. They are simple forms of communication that do not follow the grammatical rules of either spoken or signed language.
