Sandy's message may have been intended for Shane alone but I too would
like to know what lexical borrowing (into BSL) LEPRECHAUN would become. ;-)

Having had discussions with my work colleagues today about signs for
gender orientation and then immediately afterwards two separate students I
support wanting those very signs (had to resort to some creative
productive lexicon work) and also recently dicussing with colleagues a
suitable sign for aborigine only to discover later that colleguages in
other colleges were discussing a requriement for that same sign at the
same time I'm now expecting to have to sign LEPRECHAUN tomorrow morning at
9AM. ;-)
