Hi Val -
The article is accepted and available online as a proof, though it's not officially in print yet.It's funny - I can't download the pdf of this version either without buying it but I should have access to it once it's actually in print. But don't buy it Val - in the meantime I can send people pdfs derived from my word document (attached). But it will be nicer once the "real" version is available.
And thanks for the congratulations!

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: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0271530911000474
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.
