Hi Valerie and friends,

 

I am following Prensentation 50 ..and it is such a pleasure. It is so interesting the way he explains his ideas!

 

Well ..please send my greetings to James. He has been of great influence in my personal history to develop decent SignWriting skills. And in the past we have had some kind of exchange on the sw-list forum.

 

Ha ... one of his suggestions that still are on my mind is expressed in this message from 1999...can you believe!

 

 

(I copied his mail to the sw-list forum from 1999 (!!!!)   just for fun.)

 

So without him and his work in Naicaragua I definitely would not teach my deaf students the way I do today.

 

 

All best and keep on with your excellent Symposium 2015

A suggestion for whatever its worth...
In Nicaragua, we found it useful to designate proper nouns (name signs for
people, cities, etc.) by underlining the sign. Hence, we are able to
distinguish nina (little girl) from Nina (one of Columbus' ships) without
getting confused.

In english, for example, John likes loody vs. John likes Loody. In the
first case, I would guess loody to be perhaps a food. Anyway, I would
expect to find "loody" in a dictionary. In the second case, I would assume
Loody to be a person, and I wouldn't bother looking up the meaning in a
dictionary. So, we found it useful to use underlining since we can't
capitalize.

-- James

All best Stefan
