Algerian Sign Language (French: Langue des signes algérienne (LSA), Tamazight: Tamslayt Tadugamt n Lezzayer, Arabic: لغة الإشارة الجزائر ) is the sign language most commonly used in Algeria. It was officially recognized by the Algerian law on the protection and promotion of persons with a disability enacted on May 8, 2002.

It has influenced the deaf community in Oujda in northern Morocco.[2]
