Okay, that sounds like a good next step, if I can fix my own goofs!
Just feels a little strange, as ASL is still very much a new language to
me, and there are so many much-more fluent people already out there, just
wasn't sure if it is appropriate for the equivalent of a university
2nd-year student to do so.
So long's I don't go creating more goofs!
And so ... folks should *please* feel free to let me know when/if they see
a mistake from a "Kim from Boston" ASL-dictionary entry!!
