SignWriting ListFebruary 21, 2014
Hello Anny -I am so glad to know you have kept signecriture.org alive - It is a lovely site:
SignÉcriturehttp://www.signecriture.org/Bienvenue.html
I would love to see the Mini Dico, but could not find the page that shows any SignWriting - is there a link?
meanwhile, the old Pisourd site still has active links on the web with full SignWriting…thank you for your work on that dictionary, no matter how frustrating it was for you- it still provides information for the general public.
And I love your games. Let’s talk about this later, when you have time. Would you like to post some of your games on this web page? I need to re-read our old emails about your games which are really good...
Learn SignWriting with Gameshttp://www.signwriting.org/lessons/games/
There have been some ASL people working with your games, so I can tell you about that later -
Val ;-)

it's been a long time.... I've always been on the list but our association www.signecriture.com is not very active.... 
my only contribution is to write the different signs in the MINI DICO (on page in the Swiss federation of the deaf Journal called FAIS-MOI SIGNE).... for example.... see below....
otherwise the association is "sleeping"We will participate in what is called "SALON DE LA FORMATION" (SALON DU LIVRE) in Geneva beginning of may and present a few games using SignWriting.... as the theme this year is "Enjeux langues - Langues en jeux"
I'll try to give you some news of this event....
PS for CLAUDIA: I'd love to meet when you come to Switzerland..... contact me privately ([log in to unmask])

I plan to write an article on this for WRAB Proceedings. Maybe in 1 month or 2... When it will be done I'll send it to the list.

I just saw that you are near Lausanne... I'll come to Losanne in july for DH conference (http://dh2014.org/) where I'll present another part of my work on SW... maybe we can meet there to speak a little bit about SW in Switzerland... I met Penny BoyesBraem 3 years ago (at the conference to remember Elena Pizzuto). I told her I'll send her my PhD thesis but... I allways forgot to... shame on me!


:-)

Claudia
PS: if we write each other outside the list... maybe french is better (for me, sure!)

Hello all :-)
yesterday I present a part of my work on SW at WRAB (Writing research across borders) in Paris.http://conference2014.fr/wrab_accueil_en.php


:-) Claudia

Here is the abstract (French with english below)
----------------------
Session X2-X3 : Bianchini Claudia Savina : Université de Poitiers / EA3816-FoReLL - France


----------------------
Représenter les Langues des Signes (LS) à travers SignWriting (SW) : peut-on parler de « fautes » ?
----------------------
La Langue des Signes (LS) est exclusivement face-à-face et elle ne peut pas être représentée par les écritures nées pour les langues vocales. Nous étudions SignWriting, un système de notation des LS qui est composé de «glyphes» (unités graphiques) qui s'agencent au sein d'une «vignette» (espace graphique). Ce système, qui est relativement simple à utiliser, présente toutefois des difficultés, notamment dans la composition des vignettes. À partir des productions et des réflexions de sourds signeurs, nous analyserons les vignettes posant des problèmes de lecture et nous verrons que ces obstacles peuvent être imputés à des facteurs humains, à des spécificités de SW mais aussi à des «fautes volontaires» du scripteur. Nous conclurons sur l'opportunité ou non de parler de «fautes d'orthographe» en SW, puisqu'il n'existe pas encore une véritable «norme». Nous verrons enfin qu'un critère subjectif remplace l'objectivité de la «norme»: c'est la lisibilité.


----------------------
Sign Languages (SL) are only face-to-face and cannot be represented by any writing system developed for spoken languages. We examine SignWriting, a notation system for LS composed of "glyphs" (graphics units) that fit together in a "thumbnail" (graphic space). However, this system, which is relatively simple to use, presents difficulties, especially in the "typesetting" of thumbnails. From the written productions and related thoughts of deaf signers, we analyze the thumbnails which cause reading problems, showing that these hindrances can be ascribed to human factors, to SW intrinsic characteristic, or even to "voluntary faults" of the writer. Finally, we consider whether or not to speak of "misspellings" in SW, since a true "standard" does not exist yet: in fact, in SW a subjective criterion, "readability", replaces the objectivity of the "norm".
