The Pacific Islands region is one of the global hot spots of linguistic diversity. However, Indigenous sign languages have rarely been documented so far. Papua New Guinea Sign Language (PNGSL) is an Indigenous sign language that has not been previously documented. Deaf representatives from all provinces of Papua New Guinea have collaborated to document and further develop this Indigenous sign language, which has also been endorsed by the government as the fourth official language.
This is the first volume of the PNGSL picture dictionary. The signs in this book have been agreed on by the Deaf community as a first standard to be used for Deaf education, teacher training and interpreting services, while acknowledging the value and coexistence of various regional varieties and of PNGSL.
