Vietnamese schools teach the alphabet with these 29 letters. The total number of possible letters is much higher if diacritical marks are added. I have difficult time to find the rest of other alphabet letters this Deaf local signed. Please let me know if you know these letters.
Alphabets - a, á, ớ, b, c, d, đ, e, ê, g, h i, k l, m, n, o, ô, ơ, p, q, r, s, t, u, ư, v, x, y
The three sign languages indigenous to Vietnam are found in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Haiphong. They are part of a sign language area that includes indigenous sign languages of Laos and Thailand, though it is not known if they are related to each other. There is some influence from French Sign Language. There are attempts to develop a national standard language, Vietnamese Sign Language.
Hope you learned something new today! Enjoy learning the difference between ASL and Vietnamese Sign Language.
