SignWriting List
February 25, 2020

Hello Marie, Maria and the LSM Dictionary team!

Beautiful work. I enjoyed visiting your new online dictionary:

Maltese Sign Language (LSM) Dictionary
https://mlrs.research.um.edu.mt/resources/lsm/

And thank you for sharing with us.

Here attached are two screen captures of two entries in the dictionary. Very clear and well designed format. I look forward to studying the dictionary in more detail soon. I can imagine this is an enormous job for your team. Thank you for doing this for the world. If there is anything I can do to help, please tell me - Val ;-)

Dear Valerie,

It's lovely to hear from you. We are still working on the online Maltese Sign Language (LSM) dictionary
which you can access on: 
https://mlrs.research.um.edu.mt/resources/lsm/
You can look for signs through words in Maltese or English.  There are still several errors which I am trying to put right.
However, we have populated it with several signs. Unfortunately we have had to upload the last few without the signwriting
so we hope we will manage to finish the signwriting of these too before long.  Shall we say it is still work in progress?

We would be pleased to try and answer some of your questions should you have any when you take a look at the online
dictionary. Only the bulk of the animal volume is illustrated. We have had to concentrate on the more crucial elements.
Some of the videos are very old.  I think I will have to leave it to the next generation to redo those as I felt we should add rather
than renew for the time being as we have had very limited funds to work with.

We really appreciate being able to use the wonderful signwriting tools.

Best wishes to all!

Marie, Maria & the LSM dictionary team
