SignWriting List
May 7, 2013

Hi James!
Both grammar documents are available for download now, I can see on your site, and they are pretty amazing documents - some 36 or 40 pages - I am skimming them now…congratulations on this great accomplishment -

Go to
http://www.nicaraguansignlanguageprojects.org/Projects_Now_and_Future.html

and scroll down at the bottom of the page to download the documents…

I have realized I must do a better job for everyone, when it comes to our archives of SignWriting documents on our SignWriting web sites - our web sites are out of date and need to be updated with the latest archival software so that we have a really good library online for SignWriting materials - so it is still my dream to have all or most of your books, James, available for the world to download on the web and hopefully that day will come  -

meanwhile have you noticed we do have a lot of your documents re-written in SignPuddle for the Nicaragua Literature Puddle…

Nicaraguan SignPuddle for Literature

Fun to read!

Val ;-)

This is a real shame, as this stuff was very popular and useful when we actually did operate a school.

After all, "If I don't understand the grammar rules, then I am free to conclude that there are no grammar rules.  And, since I have concluded that there are no grammar rules, then I can deduce that the language is not a real language anyway."  Accordingly, we have produced a grammar text that will force educators to either 1) just refuse to read it (probably choice) or 2) concede that the language is more sophisticated and rule governed than they had thought.  This may force some hard choices.
