Considering that I am sharing the stage with 2 other people over 45 minutes,
I will be focusing on the many "literatures" being created using Sign
SECTION I: Overview:
Sign Writing as a writing system.
- Examples from Valerie of the workbook.
SECTION II: Translation:
Copies of the various translations of some of the Psalms, the Charge of the
Goddess, the Star-Spangled Banner, to show both "close to English" and
"tending toward ASL" in word choices.
A little bit of "O Menina" and some examples from Brazilian Portuguese to
show that literature is being developed.
SECTION III: Original works.
A book report on the Trojan War (courtesy of the Klegls)
SECTION IV: Dictionaries
Libras/Portuguese - Portuguese/Libras
Maltese/Maltese Sign Language
In addition to walking through the various literatures I have, I will be
making "poster reports" using samples of each to show what each group that
has sent me work is doing.
Hope this overview helps.
