Is It Necessary To Create Abbreviations of Signed Languages?
Andersson, Yerker
Sign Language Studies, v1 n3 p214-27 Spr 2001
Suggests considering the following before creating abbreviations of sign languages: the recognition of signed languages as official languages; the standardization of signed languages; the existence of different signed languages using the same spoken language as a substitute language; whether attention should be given to countries whose names share the same initial letter; and the cultural influence on adopted foreign sign languages.
