Country Sign Language

Information:

Henri Wittmann assigned DSL to the French Sign Language family because of similarities in vocabulary. However, the founder of the first deaf school in Denmark, Peter Atke Castberg, was receptive to local sign language in 1807 and so may have introduced FSL signs to the local language rather than FSL itself.

Norwegian Sign Language is thought to be a descendant of DSL. However, it may well be a mixture of DSL and indigenous sign, parallel to the situation between Swedish Sign Language and Finnish Sign Language.

Faroese Sign Language and Greenlandic Sign Language are more clearly dialects of DSL.

Happy learning!
