SignWriting List
June 1, 2012

Hello Maria and everyone -
Perhaps you would be interested in reading Steve Slevinski's interview, which mentions the different reasons for writing vertically and horizontally. I can post excerpts about the differences in a later message.

Meanwhile, here is my survey:

1. American Sign Language (the best I can anyway) (or any other sign language transcribed from video)
2. vertical

Thank you for this survey, Maria!
