SignWriting List
September 18, 2013

Dear SignWriting List Members:
I have been asked to answer these 10 questions. Although I will try to answer too, if there are List members who have the time to answer some of the questions, writing your answers here to the List, it will be very helpful to me and to all of us - This is related to raising funds for our SignWriting Symposium 2014, and to the important development of Wikipedias in the world's sign languages -

We are going to have a stupendous event in 2014! So raising the funds for it, is now my priority...

Many thanks for your input!  Val ;-)


These are ten questions…..
  1. Some people say "why do they not use English".. How different is a sign language from a spoken language
  2. How do you explain what it means when a language cannot be written
  3. SignWriting is a script. How many languages are written in SignWriting 
  4. Can you recognise what sign language it is from a written text 
  5. What are the most active sign languages as far as you know
  6. The use of SignWriting is growing rapidly. How do you know about how it develops
  7. Can SignWriting be used on mobile phones or is there an app for that
  8. Are there many schools where they teach SignWriting
  9. How hard would it be to have the pupils at these schools write two articles a month ... How many Wikipedias could be started that way
  10. Why is Wikipedia strategically important for getting more people to know about SignWriting

Val ;-)
