Ha! This is a dictionary from SPAIN, not Brazil!

You are right that the Brazilians are also publishing beautiful dictionaries and there will be a new one from Brazil in February, 2012.

But right  now, in November 2011, SPAIN published their own new dictionary from Barcelona. I am so happy to have this beautiful new publication written in Catalan Sign Language in SignWriting. It was a labor of love for 10 years by the author, Ramon Ferrerons.

...and Ron, you are doing great work translating the Bible into American Sign Language too - so there are many publications around the world in SignWriting now -

My only problem is finding they time to archive all the accomplishments around the world -

That is why it is important to post messages to the SignWriting List announcing different publications and events - that way the events are archived in the SignWriting List Archives for history...

Book title:
Primer Diccionari General i Etimologic de la Llengua de Signes Catalana


Here is the way the dictionary looks inside. Notice the signs are written in SignWriting, with paragraphs of spoken language description. To learn how to reproduce the sign, the reader must read SignWriting - No photos or life-like drawings of people - just pure SignWriting and word descriptions - smile a well-designed format that is easy to use - Ramon tells me that he and his team worked 10 years on this book -
