Welcome to the SignWriting Discussion List!
Sutton SignWriting, the International SignWriting Alphabet (ISWA), is a world script that writes any sign language in the world. With SignWriting, over 60 sign languages are written daily on the internet. See SignWriting.org.
The SignWriting Discussion List, on LinguistList.org, is an email list of more than 300 List members from over 20 countries, who share their experiences writing different sign languages in SignWriting, discussing the social impact of writing sign languages, and sharing their research projects and software developments.
Ask questions on how to write a sign, and Valerie Sutton, Adam Frost and other teachers will respond. The List teachers demonstrate how to read and write signs from any country, directly on the List with attached graphics and video clips. All members are welcome to post technical questions.
The SignWriting List accepts attached files, including video, photos, and documents. This makes it possible to send email messages written in sign languages in SignWriting. Messages are welcome in all spoken and sign languages. We look forward to meeting you on the List!
