FSL & BSL[edit]

I made the change from French Sign Language to British Sign Language because FSL DID influence ASL; BSL didn't. Clerc returned to the United States with Gallaudette and opened the first school for the deaf (Hartfors Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb) and modified FSL to create ASL. Note that ASL and FSL use a one-handed alphabet while BSL uses two hands. BSL is exptemely different from ALS and FSL.

History[edit]

The introductory paragraph says CSL developed in the 1400's, while the main body of the article says 20th century. Which is it? Nik42 (talk) 18:02, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

I assume it means that the language emerged in the 15th century, but it wasn't institutionalized until the 20th. 210.229.27.25 (talk) 11:26, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

I corrected "her" to "he", referring to Rev. Mills in the History section. March 24, 2013 — Preceding unsigned comment added by DavidLJ (talkcontribs) 23:44, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Perception[edit]

"Chinese people seem to view deafness as a disability, even deaf people view themselves as disabled." appears to violate NPOV, by suggesting that they are wrong to do so. If they are wrong to do so, a citation is needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrHydeous (talkcontribs) 20:03, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

It is very hard to find information on Chinese sign language[edit]

I just came back from the largest book store in Shanghai. I found no categories/shelves dedicated to CSL. The one publication I found from huasha publishing company ltd ISBN978-7-5080-3005-0 (a two book set) is unaccompanied by a CD, or anything that might give indications of how two people might interact using the signs. It is basically a manual. In spite of this, I will try and add a bit more info on available resources as I think that these belong in an encyclopedia article — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.232.113.122 (talk) 14:12, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
