Oh - how silly of me! Of course, you are right that Austrian Sign Language
would have to start with the O-Umlaut! Thanks for this information, Susanne.

Someone just wrote to me and suggested that we refer to a listing on the
web - apparently there is an agreed list of names for sign languages that
can be found on the sign linguistics archives? Does anyone know that web
address?
