Notice: Hi, I am currently researching language legislation, in particular I am researching language legislation as it pertains to sign language. I am looking at New Zealand, Finland, Sweden, Uganda, South Africa and the UK. I am doing ok, but the literature is thinly spread, if anyone else out there has this interest or knows something about this area, i'm keen to get in touch. I've really only found one productive website.

Many thanks
