Yes.. exactly...writing a note to a friend in ASL signs..I do not
feel the need to write more that around 2 facial expressions per sign!
Teaching Deaf children languages is a different
environment...smile...and a totally different task...
I believe that CHA and CHEEVA can be reduced to two faces at most for
writing for everyday use...maybe even a blending of two, making one
combination face...but ASL users have to tell us which ones give them
the required information to read it quickly...
So starting with more detail and whittling it down to less is a great
way to start...
Transcribing from video usually gives more detail, than when people
write for everyday use...so they are different experiences...
