Hi Val,

I am a sign language interpreting student and was led to the SignWriting
website by my ASL linguistics professor for a reading assignment related to
a recent lesson. I found it to be very interesting and wanted to learn more
about it. I am not currently doing a project on SignWriting.

I look forward to receiving the information by mail as well as the list
regarding where to find additional information.

Thank you so much.

Rebecca
