Val,
Maybe I don't understand punctuation.  When I translate "Hello, how you? fine?" in SignPuddle, I get this:

Ignoring the different signs for "you" and "fine," the punctuation seems to be different than what's in the SignWriting on the magazine cover.

Hello Bill!
Of course you are correct. This article is written by the editor of the magazine, and has nothing to do with us, but the editor herself caught her own mistakes last night and she is changing them, and now I have to change the screen capture I took for the links on a series of web pages that we have for the Bible translations to capture the corrected grammar - so the SignWriting is not incorrect - it is well written in SignWriting - but the English underneath it had a mistake...it should have said  "Hello, how are you? Fine?"...you are correct! You would make a good editor yourself! ;-)

Val ;-)

Val,
In looking at the SignWriting on the cover of East County Magazine, there seem to be grammatical errors in both the signwriting and the English translation.  The signwriting punctuation seems to say "Hello? How are you. fine."  Of course there's the obvious error of two "are" instead of "how are" in the English translation.   Or maybe I don't understand something?  I would think what's actually being said (English translation) is "Hello, how are you? Fine?"

Dear SignWriting List!

I am happy to tell you that an article about SignWriting has been written in the San Diego East County Magazine today:

The article, by editor Miriam Raftery, is about the translation of the Gospel According to John in American Sign Language by interpreter Nancy Romero, who is writing the entire New Testament in ASL in SignWriting. An impressive task indeed!

Thank you, Miriam, for the article, and thank you Nancy, for your wonderful work!

Val ;-)
