So can the BBC get this wrong? it seem to me a standard sign language should be adopted by all, but what do I know .
A common misconception is that all sign languages are the same worldwide or that sign language is international. Aside from the pidgin International Sign, each country generally has its own, native sign language, and some have more than one, though sign languages may share similarities to each other, whether in the same country or another one.
It is not clear how many sign languages there are. The 2013 edition of Ethnologue lists 137 sign languages.
