Yeah, Singapore has its own Sign Language. It’s called Singapore Sign Language. In short form, it is SgSL, not SSL (Shanghainese Sign Language). There is no official definition, unlike ASL’s. We still wait for our national body to make an announcement about its official definition. We had our community discussion in early 2019.
American Sign Language has its over 200 years of history. Our SgSL is established and developed since the early 1950s. It had its influences from SSL, ASL and SEE2 (Signing Exact English 2) because of national education policies and language policies. Now we develop our locally generated sign vocabulary for our local culture and food.
