Hi Valerie and list members,

just for greeting-cards like the attached one  (our Thomas ) is the
birthday-child ;-)) it would be great to be able to write well accepted
ASL --

Stefan ;-))

Happy birthday dear Thomas-

I guess that within this context a more dramatic performance of dear should
be adequate like this heart holding "dear" ??

SignWriting List
February 24, 2004

Dear SW List Members:
A few weeks ago, Stefan in Germany asked if someone could write the
"Happy Birthday Song" in ASL for us, in SignWriting? I am not an expert
on ASL, and if I wrote it, the ASL signs would be in English
word-order, and we all know that is not true ASL...

So Stuart, or Adam, or any other ASL signer on the List....I am writing
to ask a favor....

Can you write "Happy-Birthday-To You" in ASL grammar for us?

Type it in SignWriter DOS and post the sentence to the List. If you
cannot make a graphics file yourself, then send the SGN file to me and
I can convert it for you. Or you can do it yourself, by exporting the
file in SignWriter DOS. That will create a BMP. Send me the BMP

I hope someone will respond!

I am very curious myself (smile)...

Val ;-)
