Charles Tiayon's curator insight, January 13, 2014 7:30 AM

he first ever Saudi sign language dictionary has been created by the Saudi Association of Hearing Impairment. It has done so to commemorate the first anniversary of opening the facility used for sign language translating and training practices.

In the alphanumberical reference dictionary, over 2,700 sign words and phrases make it presently the largest Arabic sign dictionaries. As well, it also has a manual dictionary which has the alphabet, number, and at least 750 words and phrases used only in Saudi Arabia. Around 400 signs are available in the children’s dictionary portion, which has also incorporated a phrase section for kids in the learning stages.

Ali al-Hazzani, the chairman of the association’s Board of Directors, explained that these dictionaries will be released in several forms, including printed paper copies, digital copies to be circulated on international Internet sites, copies to be publicly traded, mini-digital copies for smart phones and an interactive, flexible and smart copy for education and training purposes.
