This dictionary is for all who use British Sign Language (BSL) in Protestant churches. There are over 100 signs here and with glosses (other words that have the same sign) a vocabulary of over 250 words. This is an important reference guide for Deaf people, BSL students and tutors, interpreters, preachers, parents of Deaf children and anyone with an interest in BSL and the church. Each sign has a written explanation of handshapes, location etc. and drawings of handshapes for clarity. Some information on how the signs are derived is included where applicable. Bible verses containing the words/signs are given in some instances to add context.
