Hello Everyone, and Rebecca!
Thank you for your exuberant email messages...I am glad you are
enjoying the SW List ;-)

Has anyone on the List started to create a SignWriting book for
beginning signers who are learning ASL? I started one years ago, but
never finished it...It was based on the Signing Naturally videotape,
but it is a big job and I am not sure how many ASL teachers are ready
to write the language they teach...If I provided a SignWriting version
of the beginning Signing Naturally video series, do you think ASL
teachers would use it? I had permission to do this years ago...I would
have to re-establish that with the publishers...

Meanwhile Rebecca, I would strongly suggest that you go to this web
page, and download all 6 documents there...Those are grammar and
instruction documents, with ASL samples... Enjoy your lessons in ASL!
