My greatest objection to describing classifiers using English orthography CL-1 is what happens if you don't know that 1 is the index finger and you are talking about LIBRAS in which some dialects a CL-1 would be a thumb. That's why I much prefer SignWriting because then the written orthography of English does not rub off on the sign, like the conversation that the sign KILL can use the index finger, but KILL is not a classifier, the index finger is. 1 = index finger is not universal, and with SignWriting that can never happen. If you mean the index finger, that's what you write.

Thank you, André, for this great information! Wonderful links. I particularly like this one:


It lists all the classifiers on the left side and you can click on them to see examples - well done!

So now there is no need for me to make up a listing -

Valdenir - take a look at the above page...I hope this helps -

Val ;-)

Valdenir and André -
I look forward to seeing your documents -

I am preparing a writing of ASL classifiers for you now, but it may take a day for me to complete it, based on charts and diagrams - So look back tomorrow here on the SW List for my posting...

Meanwhile, here is an article written by two Deaf friends, Kevin Clark and Darline Clark Gunsauls. They wrote about ASL classifiers...years ago - it is a newsletter written in ASL about ASL grammar and research at Salk Institute.
