NZSL Online is growing: vocabulary updates
Signs used in the NZSL community for concepts like 'Facebook', 'Tablet' and 'Twitter', are now being added to NZSL Online, along with about 80 other signs. The dictionary continues to grow with the language.
Te Reo Māori translation for headwords
During the past year, Māori translations for each headword (main English meaning) have been added to the dictionary, so the meaning of NZSL signs can be found through both English and Māori. Work on this project was funded by a grant from Ma Te Reo, a fund administered by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (the Maori Language Commission), and by Victoria University of Wellington.
NZSL Online in its new form will be officially re-launched by Victoria University, Deaf Aotearoa New Zealand and Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori during NZSL Week in May 2013.
