Hello Charles, Rachel and everyone -
This web page is now updated:
SignWriting Linguistics Forum
to include two links to the SignTyp project...a link to download the PDF of the poster, and also a link to a description of the SignTyp project - and of course your photo too!
And the other documents and web links on this web page are popular and have played an important part in SignWriting history ...People download Joe Martin's comparison between the Stokoe system and SignWriting frequently (thank you, Joe, for your excellent comparison). This is number 4 on the linguistics web page...There is also a web version, which you do not have to download...The comparison between the Stokoe system and SignWriting was needed back in the year 2000, because at that time people really did not know the difference between the systems...so Joe's article helped with that transition...
There is also Joe's 2007 thesis, and the work of Ingvild Roald from Norway, and Steve and Dianne Parkhurst's 2008 book from Spain ...and a web article that shows a comparison between the Stokoe system, SignWriting and HamNoSys, which was also pivotal...
So thank you, to all of you, for your contributions -
