Your suggestion of LSB for a three-letter acronym for Brazilian Sign
Language is the same as Eduardo's...and I like it very much! I sure wish we
could use it....the only problem is that it is the same as the French
acronym for Belgian Sign Language....
Eduardo also suggested LBR...
These are the acronyms used in the ISO:
and then we would add....
Brazilian Sign language, or LIBRAS: LBR
How does that seem?
