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