Dear Claudia,
It sounds like a very interesting study - I'm glad you're working on it. I
am just about to get back to work on my phD after a 5 month maternity
suspension. Am working on the standardization of SignWriting for a
specific sign language - in my case, Maltese Sign Language - title is
'Signwriting: Towards a standard writing system for Maltese Sign
Thank you so much for offering to send me any article I may need. I will
be in touch then once I get back to work properly - as it takes a bit of
time to set the ball rolling again, after such a long break. I don't have
many references - just my two thesis which have used signwriting as
transcriptions, but I still have to find time to make these available on
the signwriting website. I love Rome! And it's is not far away, maybe we
could meet one day and discuss signwriting :)
Bye for now,
