Language Standardization and Signed Language Dictionaries.
Johnston, Trevor
Sign Language Studies, v3 n4 p431-68 Sum 2003
Discusses the issue of the use of signed language dictionaries in the standardization of signed languages with reference to the Australian Sign language (Auslan) dictionaries. Details the structure of the Auslan dictionaries and argues that bilingual, bidirectional dictionaries of this type must be produced if communities are to encourage language standardization in a meaningful way.
