This is the first textbook dealing specifically with British sign
linguistics. It provides essential support for learners of British Sign
Language and others interested in the structure and use of BSL, and assumes
no previous knowledge of linguistics and sign language. Technical terms and
linguistic jargon are kept to a minimum. The book contains over three
hundred illustrations and an index of signs and sign phrases. There are
also exercises and a reading list for further independent study.
