That's helpful to know-- can you check my comment above and help correct me?

You could start with Google or Wikipedia or a bookstore or something. I suggest ultra basic 101 type reading on both the mechanical linguistics of signed languages, and on the sociolinguistics of signed language and Deaf history, especially the history of what "well-meaning" clueless hearing folk have done to Deaf people and their languages.

Ah, and I see trouble has found her way here while I was writing this. Seriously, I am biting my tongue SO HARD here. Go read something.

Some of the things I said were badly and probably hurtfully phrased (now I've had my shower my brain is working better) and some bits I was just wrong on. I'm going to bow out, because I think any other participation on my part is going to boil down to a lot of mansplaining and nothing of value, but I want to apologize for any hurt I caused.

Frankly, most of the research has been done in the U.S. Plugging "deaf" into your local library should give you a large number of books to start out with. Heck, the original "Sign Language is a Real Language" is available free on line.

... Which I can't find right now, and my reference material isn't right next to me, but Stokoe Notation on that Very Important Academic Resource of Wikipedia *cough* has some notes.
