Hello SW List, and AnnaGrace,

Thank you for these messages, AnnaGrace. I think Uta’s suggestion of 1000 SignWriting questions is a great idea too…and I realize now that we need to put the topic of the question in the subject so we don’t get confused with a lot of questions in the future. Because each question is unique.

Maybe you could help me with this question, that was sent to me privately by a student of ASL. I suggested that he join the SignWriting List and to also try finding the signs already written in SignPuddle, but I never found out if he was able to use SignPuddle, and I do not believe he joined the SignWriting List yet.

Nevertheless, it still would be great if someone can find this vocabulary list and post the list of written signs here on the SW List. There are no videos. Here is the email sent to me (without names)…and of course I understand if no one has time to do this... It is a busy transition time right now between school semesters ending and changing… May is a month of graduation...
