Dear SW List Members!
James Shepard-Kegl, and Dr. Judy Shepard-Kegl, have been in Iceland for the
past few days, presenting their work with Nicaraguan Sign Language and
SignWriting at conferences and Deaf groups.
Their trip to Iceland has been blessed with the simultaneous historic
eruption of the Icelandic volcano, and it is pretty stunning to think
SignWriting was being presented in Iceland at the exact time that Iceland
was in the news all over the world because of the volcano!
James has been working with Nedelina Ivanova, who lives in Iceland. The two
of them have been writing Icelandic signs in the Icelandic SignPuddle Online:
I will be discussing some of the Icelandic signs here on the SW List in the
next few days, after I work on updating the SignWriting List information
home page on our SignWriting Site...
Thank you, James and Nedelina, for your new additions to the Icelandic
