Language Planning Priority - Documentation

Back to Strategy homepage

The purpose of documentation planning is to:

  • Develop and maintain comprehensive records of NZSL that enables the current and future use, understanding and further analysis of the language.
  • Documentation includes research, archiving, evidence-based descriptions of the structure and use of NZSL, including a dictionary, grammar and a corpus of NZSL as well as other forms of language analysis. 

What success looks like in five years’ time

  • NZSL users have ongoing access to comprehensive records of NZSL, including an NZSL online dictionary that documents NZSL and maintains a high standard of content and usability.
  • NZSL documentation and research is ongoing, reflecting partnerships between research institutions, individuals and the NZSL community.
