Did you know that sign language literature is, paradoxically, considered oral literature?

@lpslucasps ”oral” in the sense that it's not written, and ”literature” in the sense that there's a tradition of some recurring stories.

@lpslucasps well, it is ”sign language literature”, so there's that, but ”oral literature” is just to put it in the wider context of all the languages and literature as a phenomenon in general.
