Thanks for understanding, Bill, about the CDs, and are right....SignBank took longer than any of us would have wanted...but taking our time to do it right is very important -

And don't think your ideas about SignBank are not welcome..... - just the opposite - I think your points were interesting and important...Keep jumping in!

For me, spelling in SignWriting is very "sequential"....Obviously I believe in the visual units for reading, but when it comes to putting the signs in order, in a dictionary, I believe movement is quite sequential - There is a specific ordering that makes sense to me ...I guess I have used it for so long that I forgot that it might not be the same for other this will be interesting to share with everyone...

So keep splashing in our muddy waters - ha!

Great to talk with you again - And I hope the student you mentioned enjoys SignWriting -

Val ;-)
