	Dear colleagues!

	It is a real valid work done here! I do not want to criticize it
	negatively, but I must add that the autochthonous European sign
	languages of deaf people have been forgotten in these lists. We are
	struggling in the moment to get these languages acknowledged in all
	European countries where this did not happen already. So it would be
	very helpful to integrate the sogn languages at least in these list (I
	know that there were some contacts).

	Best regards

	The European Union has carried out studies on the territorial lesser
	used
	languages and minority groups of the EU. The reports are now
	accessible through
	internet. The most recent work includes the minorities in Sweden,
	Finland and

	The reason why Sign languages are excluded from the studies of
	European
	minority languages and from the European Charter for Regional or
	Minority
	Languages is political. After the break down of the political
	structures in
	Eastern Europe the Council of Europe focussed much attention on
	minorities,
	because these regions could spark ethnic conflicts. By supporting
	their
	linguistic rights it was considered that this would reduce the risk
	of=
	 ethnic
	 conflicts. Spekers of Sign languages are rarely perceived as an
	ethnic=
	 group,
	 or associated with conflict.
