South African Sign Language is a visual spacial language with its own distinct linguistic structure that includes syntax, morphology, phonology and language conventions. It is not based on any spoken or written language, but is a language in its own right. For the first time in the history of South Africa, SASL is recognized to have the status of any other official language and is offered as subject from Gr R – Gr 12 on home language level. South African Sign Language is a real language, equivalent to any other language. In 2018 the first cohort of Gr 12’s could be part of the NCS SASL Gr 12 paper….a breakthrough for Deaf Education in the country.
