[sw-l] sign for New year's pledge

of New Year's pledge?

The words "pledge" and "resolution" do mean similar things in 
English, but a standard phrase in English is "New Year's resolution", 
which is a pledge to do certain things in the New Year...;-)

So everyone - how would you write "New Year's resolution" in ASL?

I haven't a clue ;-))

Val ;-)

SignText won't show and the end result of the translate feature produces 
nothing. Hopefully this helps. If not, I will send it when I get to a
