Sign Language: Chiriqui Sign Languages

Subclassification references
Comments on subclassification

The lexical comparison of Parks, Jason (2011): 82 shows that Honduras Sign Language [hond1239] and Panamanian Sign Language [pana1308] are each other's closest relatives and that they in turn show a slight commonality with ASL (there is also continuous ASL influence, see Holly Williams 2010: 14-15 ). That Chiriqui Sign Language [chir1296] is also a member of this family is implied by Parks, Elizabeth S. (2016): 314 .

AES status:
Campbell, Lyle and Lee, Nala Huiying and Okura, Eve and Simpson, Sean and Ueki, Kaori 2022
Chiriqui Sign Language (10733) = Threatened (60 percent certain, based on the evidence available) (Although there are now some sign language classes offered through deaf associations, religious organizations, and some universities, deaf people indicate that these classes are primarily for hearing people and that most of the deaf community acquires sign language from their deaf friends.)

(see Parks et al. 2011)
