SignWriting List

Dear SW Listers, and Dr. Vonen -

Please forgive my long delay in welcoming you to the SignWriting List, Dr. Vonen...

I am interested in your work with deaf bilingualism. In fact, another professor focusing on deaf bilingualism at the University of Neuchatel in French-Switzerland, Dr. Francois Grosjean, contacted me last Spring to ask if we had research on SignWriting and deaf bilingualism. Francois sent me some published papers on his research in this area. It has been on the back of mind for a long time....There are some new developments regarding SignWriting and Deaf children now...

But first, perhaps you could share with us? Can you tell us about your research at the University of Oslo?

Val ;-)
