I've been watching out for this ever since you mentioned it, but
although there are many inflections on the sign for "signing" in BSL,
I'm afraid the signers I know and on the TV as well invariably just
fingerspell B-S-L when referrring to the language. In the SignMatters
article I did it as the full three signs "British Sign Language" but
this isn't usual.
