Lingua gesticulatoria Nicaraguensis[1] (Hispanice Idioma de señas de Nicaragua, ISN) est lingua sponte creata annis 1970 et 1980 inter discipulos surdos in nonnullis scholis in Nicaragua occidentali sitis. Quae lingua gesticulatoria quam maxime linguistarum interest studiaque movet, quod novae linguae originis inquirendae occasionem praebeat.

Surdi (600.000[2]) ab aliis disiuncti plerumque simplicibus gestibus uti solebant, ut de rebus domesticis cum amicis necessariisque communicare possent. Ex quibus gestibus saepe lingua privata evenit.[3].
