Hello James!
Thank you for posting your new handbook!

So the 875 signs that you mention in your message below…are they in the many individual pdfs you just posted? And are those the signs that my nephew should enter into SignPuddle for you? He is ready and willing to start the work as soon as you are ready…

These pages seem to have vocabulary, so we could download all the pdfs on your site and start entering the signs into SignPuddle for Nicaragua…is that what you want?

The links are divided into the grammar and syntax sections (English or Spanish versions) and 18 vocabulary topics:  adjetivos opuestos (opposite adjectives), alimento (food), animals (animals), calendario y la hora (calendar and time), ciudad y campo (city and country), clima (weather), colores (color), en la casa (in the house), escuela (school), familia (family), geografia (geography), medico (medical), negacion y afirmacion (negation and affirmation), sentiminetos (sentiments), transporte (transportation), verbos (verbs)
