Location (sign Language)
In sign languages, location, or tab, refers to specific places that the hands occupy as they are used to form words. In Stokoe terminology it is known as the TAB, an abbreviation of tabula. Location is one of five components of a sign, along with handshape (DEZ), orientation (ORI), movement (SIG), and facial-body expression. Different sign languages make use of different locations.

Worora Kinship Sign Language
Worrorra (Worora), or Western Worrorran, is a moribund Australian Aboriginal language of northern Western Australia. Worrorra is a dialect cluster; Bowern (2011) recognizes five languages: Worrorra proper, Unggumi, Yawijibaya, Unggarranggu, and Umiida.[6] An alleged Maialnga language was a reported clan name of Worrorra proper that could not be confirmed with speakers.[7] Sign language[edit] The Worora have (or at one point had) a signed form of their language, used for speaking to kin in certain taboo relationships,[8] but it is not clear from records that it was particularly well developed compared to other Australian Aboriginal sign languages.[9] References[edit]^ "Census 2016, Language spoken at home by Sex (SA2+)". stat.data.abs.gov.au.
