Hello list,
someone asked in the debate about how to organize signs why it would make
sense to order them in a certain way. Just one comment: Our Hamburg
Bilingual Class (which has been the first being educated with German Sign
Language as instructional language) is now also designing Poetry in Sign
Language or translating German Poetry into Sign Language. Sometimes they are
trying to match signs by handshape, sometimes it is more the movement they
think fits best, so they change the handshape a bit. For all these purposes
new possibilities in ordering sign seem helpful.
