Hi Again. Stefan.
 
I dont think anyone is in CHarge of the DIctionary  .As anyone who knows  SW 
can add to it..  
SUzanne Pach.. (Dutch )  who was our Workshop tutor  also added some.
when she prepared the workshop handouts.. 

 I added alot of the SW  for the BSL  after we had the   Workshop .

 So I just put SP  for Southport..   the area I live in.. 
As it saved time 

  WHat I did was ,  looked at   the USA  dictionary .. as I knew  that Diaper and Nappy were the 
same Sign   so I copied it to the British DIctionary...  but added the British name.

I then scrolled through all their signs and when I found  those that I knew as a BSL sign
I then  Copied and renamed.. 
 I hope you inderstand what I mean. 

It took  many  many hours even to do  those.. 

 there are  SW Nursery rhymes  in the Literature   to link with   my DVD
so having the SW  print outs  went  beautifully with the DVD  for those 
on the workshop.. 

I havent  got back to  doing any more  but maybe I will  in time.. 

Regards.

Hello  Maureen ,,,  and other
BSL - SW-list members , ...

 

Thank you very much for
your answer. It helps a lot to understand. 

 

Well ...mh ... how can
anybody think that this kind of drawings ... mh... 

 

Documents written in
SignWriting are tremendously better in any way. 

 

The reason that I am
interested in these materials is the following. At school we discuss to offer
BSL – going along with learning English ... instead of a mixture of DGS
and English translation. 

 

I do not know whether we
really need that ..but it would be helpful to offer at least a few documents
written in BSL ... 

 

I would love to start
with the numbers from 1 to 20 and some nouns  (boy, girl, teacher, cat, dog,...)
   some Adjectives... (colours,
deaf, hearing, small, ...) 

 

Looking at the BSL Online
dictionary which can be used with our great delegs-Editor there are not too
many entries right now... So we need more. 

 

Looking at online BSL - Videos
 I  can see a lot of information coming from the mouth – same happened
when I looked at the deaf students visiting our school this week. ... so our
symbol set for “Mundbilder” would be helpful to write the signs as
the signers perform them. 

 

I would like to discuss
that. Here is my question. 

 

I do not know who on the
sw-list is in charge of the BSL  dictionary. 

 

Who is SP  ..the person
that made most of the entries? 

 

 

 

All best Stefan

Hi again..  



 Yes,  Ive Heard  of and Have the  2 cds  that are
needed to install on the computer  to be

 able to design and print out   Sign language  pictures 
with words.. 



this link will show you what widget is.. and there are some free 
documents  that may be of use to you..





http://www.widgit.com/resources/bsl/sheets/ 



 Its really for making flash cards.. posters etc  for
people of all ages  learning sign language 

 and  for  teaching aids .  The
Dictionaries  that you can buy   are  made with these .

They  are very good  and I use alot of them as
teaching  aids..  and recommend our members 

to buy Cath Smiths.. products..



  The Widget could not be used for a Deaf person to write
a letter or  story  in their own

sign language.      so 
its completely  different to   SignWriting.. 



I Held a signwriting  workshop here in Southport. Merseyside and Have
added  BSL SW signs 

to the British SW section. 

 

I cant understand why SW was never introduced into British Deaf schools 
many years ago..

I know Deaf person  at the Deaf  centre in Southport that  could
not read nor write   he  went to 

  The Birkdale Deaf school  but it was ORAL  and didnt allow 
signing.





I'm hard of  hearing.. and been doing  sign language  for 17
years.. and also running my voluntary group

 to teach others  ,  Deaf people with no signing   and
hearing people needing or wanting to learn 

for many different reasons. .. 



 Ive sent  you an invitation by email  to join our  face
book. group . 



my best regards.. 







   
Maureen

Hi Maureen, 

 

thnak you for your
message. 

 

Well this graphic is just
an example This week we have had a Comenius week at our school. Teams from Vienna
(Austria),  Derby
(England) and  Lubliniec
(Poland) visited our school. They came
to my classroom and I have had a short opportunity to demonstrate how we work
so tremendously effectful with the delegs-Editor. 

 

The people from England looked at it and made a
comment that there is already a pretty similar concept for BSL  ...
“Widget”...kind of that ... I forgot the exact term. 

 

 

Nevertheless it seems to me that this system
is more kind of drawing people with arrows describing what kind of movement ...
and it is not online. There must be some kind of Software-programm on a CD...
 In a few weeks my colleague will get the chance to visit them and to
bring this software..

Hi Maureen do you know anything about that? 

 

 

I explained that with the
Delegs-BSL – dictionary they would be able to start immediately to write
excercise sheets and SW-documents for their deaf students ... May  be it
has been a little bit too enthusiastic ..;-)  and overwhelming when we
wrote a few simple phrases in BSL . Anyway Tima did an outstanding job to
demonstrate that he was able to write English, BSL and German... 

 

Would be a pleasure to
send the BSL ABC  ... but where? Do you offer a link .. so that I have not
to search for hours?

 

Stefan
