Celebrating the 1000th BSL Glossary sign "Fireball"

BSL Glossary Sign Fireball

Our BSL Glossary has reached a milestone today. The sign language astronomy term for ‘fireball’ is the thousandth term to be added to the website compiled by experts for use by teachers, interpreters and pupils. The glossary, available at, is being developed to meet demand from deaf pupils and teachers for a wider scientific vocabulary in British Sign Language.
