Penan’s Oroo’ Short Message Signs (PO-SMS): co-Design of a Digital Jungle Sign Language Application
This excellent article introduces how the Participatory Action Research Methodology Augmentation (PRISMA) and IKM are merging in order to create an SMS sign language of the Oroo’ jungle language. The article explains the improvement of the digital sign language from previous efforts of compiling a database. The improvement focusses on daily use of the sign language through SMS apps that can be used by Penan tribal members of the younger generation. In doing so, they will keep the language alive and revitalize interest in a language that is close to being lost- along with the jungle in which it has traditionally been used.
