Hi, Maria Cristina! Are you doing your master in what university? I'm
looking for an university who works ( or accept) sign language studies...

> Dear Val and SW list members:
> I'm quite fine. I don't work with SW directly, I'm researching the
> Brazilian SLI proficiency in my Master, but occasionally I have the
> opportunity to contact again SW. February I gave SW basic (and
> intensive) lessons to hearing adults (researchers) from the Federal
> University of Brasilia (UnB) and it was the first time there was no
> deaf in the class and that I teached it in Portuguese (before only in
> sign language). It was a good surprise to see that students and
> scholars from UnB learned SW so fast as deaf individuals. They intend
> to use it for transcriptions of sign language.
> And recently I've presented a paper in a Linguistic event (Celsul) in
> Pelotas called: The possibility of Signwriting in Deaf Literacy
> (available only in Portuguese, sorry). As you can see SW is not in my
> focus now, but it's always around (even in my own sign language
> transcriptions).
> I've been at TISLR, fortunately or unfortunately, I've been working in
> the Brazilian Sign Language team with almost no time to chat, it was a
> shame cause I've only said "hi" and "see you later" then gone back to
> work.
> Best regards to everyone!
