Catalan manual alphabet
The Catalan manual alphabet is used in Catalan Sign Language. It is one of the oldest manual alphabets still in use . However, it wasn't officially recognized as one of Catalonia's official languages until 2010, when Law 17/2010, 3 of June, of the Catalan sign language (LSC) was approved by the government. The Catalan manual alphabet is single-handed and is extremely similar to the Spanish manual alphabet. As a result, people who use Spanish sign language can understand approximately up to 80% of the Catalan sign language.
