Black American Sign Language (BASL) or Black Sign Variation (BSV) is used by Deaf Black Americans in the U.S.

The variation from American Sign Language (ASL) was highly influenced by the segregation of schools in the South. Since the schools at the time were separated based upon race, it created two language communities among Deaf signers. Terms like 'Africanisms in the Gullah dialect' (Turner, ) Black Dialect (Labov ), Negro Speech (Wolfram ), Black English (Dillard ), and Ebonics (Williams ) have been used interchangeably to describe the language of African-Americans.

Most recently the term African-American. At its most literal level, Ebonics simply means 'black speech' (a blend of the words ebony 'black' and phonics 'sounds'). The term was created in by a group of black scholars who disliked the negative connotations of terms like 'Nonstandard Negro English' that had been coined in the s when the first modern large-scale linguistic studies of African American speech-communities began.

In black vernacular, Signifying is a sign that words cannot be trusted, that even the most literal utterance allows room for interpretation, that language is both carnival and minefield. In his book Spoken Soul: the Story of Black English, Russell John Rickford, a linguistic scholar, analyzed the original context and the contemporary version of ebonics.
