Mongolian Sign Language ("Mongolian: Монгол дохионы хэл, Mongol dokhiony khel) is a "sign language used in "Mongolia. "Ethnologue estimates that there were between 10,000 and 147,000 deaf people in Mongolia as of 1998; however, it is not known how many of those are users of MSL.[2]

Linda Ball, a "Peace Corps volunteer in Mongolia, is believed to have created the first dictionary of MSL in 1995.[3] In 2007, another MSL dictionary with 3,000 entries was published by Mongolia's Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science with assistance from "UNESCO.[4]
