SENTENCE THIS EXAMPLE ASL WRITE HOWrhq SIGNWRITING.

SENTENCE is added to give THIS some context.  THIS alone felt all stranded, like a classifier without a referent.  WITH doesn't feel right to me.  It is actually the same sign as TOGETHER, and in this context it isn't about being 'with' something it is about what method is used to convey it, so I went with HOW as a rhetorical.  I almost added WHATrhq after THIS SENTENCE, but decided one rhetorical was enough...
