Dear All,

I have been a "secret" reader of this brilliant list for a while, but 
this is my first time as actual participant, so I'd like to introduce 

I am currently preparing for my master's thesis. I am studying Sign 
Languages, Applied Linguistics and Media Culture at the University of 
Hamburg / Germany. For my last year's B.A. exams I have already worked 
on various aspects of SignWriting-Projects and right now I am trying to 
get all the information I can on empirical research projects regarding 
SignWriting as I am thinking about conducting an empirical study within 
my master's thesis . I know, that the approach taken so far is more of 
an ethnographic one rather than statistical, but I do believe that 
there are good possibilities combining the two - especially as 
empirical research in the field of applied linguistics seems to get 
more and more important to prove one's point.

I would be very greatful for any hints, ideas or clues you might have 
regarding such empirical studies concerning SignWriting in any country.

Best regards,

Frauke Johns
