Signed languages are natural human languages used by deaf people throughout the world as their native or primary language. Alghough no formal survey of the world's signed languages has ever been conducted, it is generally assumed that they number in the hundreds - the 16th edition of the Summer Institute of Linguistics Ethnologue of the world's languages lists 130 signed languages (Lewis, 2009). Like spoken languages, signed languages may be classified into genetic groups. These genetic relations follow the historical development of signed languages, and so do not reflect the same relations as may exist for spoken languages in the same areas.
