SignWriting Lisst
August 16, 2014

Very exciting work, James. We will be following you, here on the SignWriting List -

I hope you will present your work at the next SignWriting Symposium 2015, which streams live online - we are building a tradition of annual sharing of SignWriting projects - streamed onto YouTube - bringing a larger audience to SignWriting developments -

Val ;-)

In a nutshell, the syntax with plain verbs is SVO (subject-verb-object) -- just like English.  You might say that SVO is the "default" syntax in ISN.  However, because so many sentences involve spatial verbs (with moving figures and grounded objects), one might think that SVO is the exception, rather than the rule.

(The cat sits on the rock, the fox sits on the rock, but the dog stands on the rock.  -- emphasis on dog for that last phrase, so the sign order might shift from OSV to SOV.  You all might call this topicalization.)

This video is presented entirely in ISN (with lots of SignWriting) and with English captioning.  There were a few captioning errors (which is annoying for me, but my fault), and somehow we edited in a mistaken clip (showing ISN as "I-N-S").
