SignWriting List
February 18, 2003

Hello Everyone -
Yes...when it comes to the names of countries, we did a little work on
that ourselves. In the small 3,100 sign ASL dictionary that we have in
SignWriter 4.4, we do have names of countries included, and I asked our
DAC staff at the time to add signs that were considered to be the
international signs for those countries, plus the older ASL signs for
the for example, look up "Germany", and you will find two
signs - one I believe is the real German sign, and the other is the old
ASL sign...we have a list of countries in that dictionary alone...

Val ;-)
