Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to design a minimal states deterministic finite automaton for Sign language pattern using the concept regular expression. Deterministic finite automata are a practical approach used for designing a computational model. This paper also emphasis on minimization of Sign language DFA using the concept of contraction (or merging) of equivalent states algorithm.
Keywords: Sign Language pattern, Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA), Minimization of DFA.

Scope of the Article: Natural Language Processing
