SignWriting List
April 11, 2007

Dear SW List!
Anny from French-Switzerland has a big project of writing lots of  
signs from videos. We do not have permission to share the videos with  
you, but we can share the writing of signs and we will do our best to  
explain what is going on with each

So in the next few messages I (and possibly Adam) will be posting  
different ways of writing some of the signs that Anny mentions look for the next will be interesting!

Adam - I am going to prepare an email focusing on Fête next...want to  
take the second one yourself? I will comment on the signs every-other- video necessary...

So the sign for Fête is coming next message...Val ;-)
