The sign is very very similar.

The sign for "husband" is more forceful than the gentler sign for "wife" in
BSL ;-)

In NISL, the husband sign is straight (floor pane) whereas the wife is a bit
"camp hand" ;-)

Don’t you love the BSL/NISL/ISL mouthing for "finish" - we mouth it as
"fish"!!!!!! yet we mouth "fish" as "fik" or "fick"
