Hello Everyone, and Tini -
I am not the expert on these naming trends...Signed English is the
commonly used term, but Sandy is right that in England, that could mean
BSL signs in English word order, but here in the US, the same term
means ASL signs in English word order...so the signs are different but
the spoken language is the same...No matter what, you should change the
term Canadian English Sign Language because it is simply wrong...How
about this?...

written in Signed English
(ASL signs in English word order)

Val ;-)
