The Grammar of German Sign Language from the Perspective of Deaf Experts
Early in 2008, the first multimedia description of the grammar of German Sign Language (DGS) was completed at the University of Hamburg, conceived by experts who are actually deaf themselves. It was developed in the context of a three-year project aimed at qualifying deaf sign language course leaders by employees of the Institute for German Sign Language and Communication of the Deaf, working in cooperation with deaf experts from all over Germany.
