Looking at your document Nancy – I have a question. (Same question goes to
Adam  ;-)) )

 I tried to rewrite your sentence with the US- SignPuddle Dictionary. I do
not get the same signs this way. Does this mean that you write this kind of
document from scratch with SignText?   

 

I generally write from scratch with SignText, although there are times that
I will use the translate feature for some bases and then edit it in SignText
to match how I would sign something.

 



Now a discussion apart from SignWriting and spelling...

 

Both of you (Nancy and Adam)  write a sign for “with” –mh –   (Maybe just
because Maria asked for a sentence including this  “with”)

 

Do not know ASL but  here is my question – from my point of idea “with” is
kind of  “with a pen” or “with my friend”    or...”with the delegs Editor”
but “written with (????) SignWriting?

 

I am looking forward to your answers.

 

All best

 

Stefan

 

Like I said in my original email, I am not sure how I would truly sign this
sentence if I were with my friends and trying to convey the same thought.
Yes, the signing of WITH is influenced by the original sentence having the
word "with" in it. I went with it because I felt that it would be understood
by most as to what is meant. (But that is also because most ASL users that I
know are bilingual, especially the Deaf ones.) I might do another attempt at
the sentence now that I have seen Cherie's writing and had some time to
think it over.
