Nicaraguan Sign Language

Languages Deaf Nicaragua

Nicaraguan Sign Language (ISN; Spanish: Idioma de SeƱas de Nicaragua) is a sign language that was largely spontaneously developed by deaf children in a number of schools in western Nicaragua in the 1970s and 1980s. It is of particular interest to the linguists who study it because it offers a unique opportunity to study what they believe to be the birth of a new language.
