Hi Valerie -

thanks for the stills - much better to identify -
wow - thinking back to our Japanese bible project I am happy to participate
in this new project -

There is definitely a difference if somebody transcribes a SL - video into
SW if he is familiar with that given SL. It is much more like
movement-writing  if you are not informed about the "pure lexical entry"
But we all can learn from this... L.I.F.E.

I do not remember - Would it be helpful to have a special procedure - like -
people who are interested to participate should offer their suggestions how
to transcribe the "stills"
within a given time (a week ?) - and afterwards there is a discussion - and
just your presentation of your spelling ? should we present our suggestions
in a specific format? (jpg, png)

This way everybody gets the chance to do the first transcription on his own
... not influenced by the perception of others - it is always interesting to
see many different variations - some may include too many details, some may
ask for a second try, but there will be often several options - and in the
end people may vote for this or that variation just because of personal

What do you think - Perhaps we can try to find out - who from the list is
interested - just as we did the last time - some time ago (smile)

Stefan ;-))
