The dictionary represents a milestone of sign language research in Hong Kong. The signs collected in this volume reflect the varieties commonly adopted in Hong Kong; each of them is given a near equivalent in both Chinese and English and a brief description about its linguistic properties. The dictionary also lays the foundation of sign linguistics research and the development of sign interpreter training, the production of sign language teaching and learning materials.
