SignWriting List
September 27, 2007

Hello Ingvild and Anny, and SW Listers!

Thanks for your comments below...There are so many countries now. I  
am working on adding Jordan and Saudi Arabia...very exciting time...

Did you have the time to download the English translation of the  
Research Studies conducted by Dr. AbuShaira, in Saudi Arabia and Jordan?

The statistical results showed that SignWriting helped the students  
in school...From a statistical point of view, as far as I can see, it  
is strongly in SignWriting's favor...I am hoping these studies will  
encourage other schools, around the globe, to add SignWriting to  
their instruction for signing Deaf students...

On the Sign Language Linguists List (SLLING) they have been  
discussing it...

Here are the links again:
