Description:This paper addresses the question, "Is Mexican Sign Language (lsm) a distinct language, with a linguistic and sociolinguistic identity of its own?" We have examined lsm from three different angles. Is lsm different from other sign languages, particularly American Sign Language (asl)? Is lsm different from the national spoken language which surrounds the Deaf community? Are there regional dialects of lsm which are significantly different from each other?
Esta disertación enfoca la pregunta: ¿Es el lenguaje de signos mexicano (lsm) distinto en sí, con una identidad lingüística y sociolingüística propia? Hemos examinado el lenguaje de signos mexicano desde estos tres ángulos diferentes: ¿Es el lenguaje de signos mexicano diferente de otros lenguajes de signos, particularmente del lenguaje de signos americano (American Sign Language, asl)? ¿Es el lsm diferente de la lengua nacional que se habla en la sociedad que rodea a la comunidad de sordos? ¿Hay dialectos regionales del lsm que son significativamente diferentes uno del otro?
