Language Planning Priority - Documentation
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.
