Re: Seeking speaker of BSL

Although I know that NZSL and BSL are not exactly the same, I know that they have a lot of similarities. From what Suzanna has said, it seems that in the case of mother, father, dad, and mum that they are all the same. I have attatched the SW for dad and mum as my Deaf friend from New Zealand would sign it.
