Sign Language: Malaysian Sign Language

Subclassification references
Comments on subclassification

Historical records and lexical comparisons show that both Malaysian Sign Language [mala1412] and Selangor Sign Language [sela1253] derive from ASL ( Hurlbut, Hope M. 2003 ). Lexicostatistical figures ( Hurlbut, Hope M. 2014 ) show that many Indonesian Deaf School sign varieties (perhaps divisible into Jakartan Sign Language [indo1291] and Yogyakarta Sign Langauge [yogy1234]) are part of the same family, even if the historical connection is not elaborated upon.
