SignWriting List
July 26, 2011

Hello Kimberly, and Erika -

Yes, I would like to learn more about your work too, Kimberly - I hope you can post more information here on the SignWriting List...

And Erika - Congratulations on the publication of this peer-reviewed article about SignWriting. I am so happy to learn about this. I hadn't realized it was published yet. I following the link you gave us below, and read the Abstract. It is exciting and I almost purchased the article online, but stopped myself when you mentioned that you can send people pdfs? Is that possible for me too?(smile) or I will be happy to purchase it - I would like to refer to it, and to link to it, on our SignWriting sites -

Congratulations also, on the birth of your beautiful daughter - the photos on Facebook are lovely -

Val ;-)

Hi Kimberly,
I'm a linguistic anthropologist, so my work at this point involves studying the way people have been using SignWriting rather than implementing a literacy project myself. I have had an article accepted for publication from this work. It can be found at:
If you don't have access to this journal through your institution, let me know and I'll send you a pdf.
I am still planning to collect more data - I'd eventually like to write a book about SignWriting.
Do you use SSW when you teach ASL? I'd love to hear more about your work.

I am looking for information regarding your literacy project and Sign Writing.  Are you still collecting data?  Have you published the results of your study?  Where can I find more information?  I teach ASL Linguistics at a local community college within an interpreter program.  In addition to an introduction to Sign Writing, I would like to share the latest with your literacy project.
