Request signs

Facebook Logo


NZSL is growing and changing all the time. If you can’t find a sign, you can place a request here.

  • Check first – carry out a search. Try a few different related words – perhaps the sign is translated slightly differently.
  • Request a sign – e.g. ‘how do you sign ....?’ ‘Is there a sign for ...?’
  • If a sign exists, approved NZSL Share members will reply and upload the sign they have seen.
  • Other approved members will now be able to comment and vote, so that you can see how widespread the sign is.

Remember that natural language development takes time. There may not be a sign for the concept yet – but keep checking! As more Deaf signers start to discuss a concept, signs will emerge.
