Thanks for the description of your choice for Sign-Spellings in
Brazilian signs, Charles. It sounds like you and Marianne Stumpf
really worked hard on it. It will be interesting to see your
Brazilian SignBank someday...

I am glad you realize that I am encouraging experimentation -  I want
to try several theories myself, to see which spellings are read
easiest by Deaf children...Then I hope in time, through usage, an
international Sign-Spelling will evolve...

So everyone's opinions are valued and appreciated...

Tomorrow morning I will start sharing how I am adding the American
signs (for now)...

Val ;-)
