Dear Valerie and list members,

ha it is fun to read your translation -
Somehow this can become in interesting experiment , kind of pretest how much
people might get interested in the use of SignBank since we will get the
chance to look up the meanig of signs - starting with the spelling of the
SW-signs ;-))

When I look for the ASL signs in the 001 dictionary I have to count on the
readers competence in his own language - and voila - it works. Evon if there
are major mistakes the "informed"  reader should be able to put the pieces
together so that the whole message makes sense to him/her !

This is the case with spoken languages as well. Looking at the first written
documents of little children first grade or foreigners who are not too
familiar with the foreign language (like me ;-)))) )   are allowed to write
their best guesses ...

I am looking forward to your next teaching lessons

Stefan ;-)
