Hello Mark,

Welcome to the SignWriting List! Thank you for your questions. I will answer your questions about where the name “SignPuddle” came from first. Then the next email I will answer your question about cursive writing. 

I’m sure that Valerie and Stephen Slevinski can go into more detail about the reasoning behind the name “SignPuddle”, but I can tell you what it implies for me.

Imagine a field with hundreds of rain puddles. Each of these puddles are filled with droplets, and each droplet contains a sign used in specific sign language. The result is each puddle is a collection of signs for a given sign language.

Dear Ms Val and Mr Adam,

Why is the platform called “SignPuddle” instead of any other names? And whether there are materials to study the cursive style of Signwriting?

Best regards,

Mark Dinh
