Recent research has revealed the existence of at least seven distinct sign languages in Thailand and Viet Nam. This research has also shown that these seven languages belong to three different language families. Some rather unexpected, surprising relationships have been found among the sign languages, however, that need to be explained. Before attemping this explanation, it is useful to review the sources of comparative data for sign language varieties in Thailand and Viet Nam and summarize the findings of previous comparative lexical research on sign language varieties in those countries.
