The dictionary represents a milestone of sign language research in Hong Kong. The signs collected in this volume reflect the varieties commonly adopted in Hong Kong; each of them is given a near equivalent in both Chinese and English and a brief description about its linguistic properties. The dictionary also lays the foundation of sign linguistics research and the development of sign interpreter training, the production of sign language teaching and learning materials.

Gladys Tang obtained her Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh in 1990. She is currently Department Chair in the Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her publications include work on second language acquisition, second language pedagogy, sign linguistics, sign language acquisition and deaf education.
