SignWriting List

Ha! So DIY means Do It Yourself?

Sorry everyone. I should have known that - (sheepish grin ;-)

But it is good to explain it to those who might know, like me...

Anyway - many thanks to Jacalyn Marosi for posting information about her new book on ASL, which uses SignWriting...

I hope many people use it, Jacs -

I will post some information about it on our SignWriting Site too...

Val ;-)

>> Valerie suggested I post info about my new text on this listserv since it includes SignWriting. :) I recently published a student workbook that teachers are requiring their advanced ASL students to purchase for classes. It's a student workbook that is basically a template for a DIY ASL dictionary. It's wildly helpful for students learning new vocabulary because they are documenting the concepts as they learn them. Here's the official description: This workbook is intended for advanced ASL students to individually fill-in ASL vocabulary signs as they are learned to create a personal dictionary. Included in this book are directions on how to utilize the transcriptions system, SignWriting techniques and examples to guide the vocabulary entries. Also included is a small section for a handshape thesaurus, an index to keep the dictionary organized, and reference charts commonly used in advanced ASL courses. Bookstores can order it, it can be purchased through the publisher direct
> ly, or Amazon.com carries it. Here are the links to the preview and purchase site of my publisher: A Preview of the text can be downloaded from the site if you follow this link: https://www.createspace.com/pub/community/give.review.do?id=1148793&rewrite=true Purchase from the Publisher: https://www.createspace.com/4806517 It is also available on Amazon.com at this link. http://www.amazon.com/Vocabulary-Book-Advanced-Students-Transcriptions/dp/0692221751/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407094842&sr=8-1&keywords=asl+vocab+book And here is a discount codes I've set up for advertizing purposes if purchased through my publisher: 10% off: PWRB93JM. I have another code that is worth $10 off the price that I'll give to individual people or for those who ask for it. Thanks for your time- I hope you like my work! Jacs Jacalyn W.
