Thanks everyone, for your great messages about acronyms!

In regards to your question above, Lourdes, I suspect that Puerto Rican
Sign Language is quite different than Spanish Sign Language used in Madrid.

In the country of Spain alone, there are more than one signed language - I
believe there is a different signed language in the Barcelona area, versus
the Madrid area, for example...

So I have little knowledge of Puerto Rican Sign Language...does anyone on
the List?

Valerie :-)
