Hello Jesse -
You mentioned that the publications cannot be on SignWriting.org.
SignWriting.org is a library that lists publications and newspaper articles and so forth, that are either about, or mention, or are written in SignWriting...
Take a look at this web page that gives links and downloads to newspaper articles on SignWriting -
Can you use these articles in your annotated bibliogprahy?
SignWriting in the Press
Newspaper & Journal Articles About SignWriting
If you download number 2 on that web page, the bibliography entry would read something like:
Fox, Margalit, New York Times, April 14 2002, "Written Notice: Another Language for the Deaf".
Is the New York Times acceptable to your work?
and what about 300 page dissertations? for example on signwriting.org, on
SignWriting for Research
Number 1 and 2 on that web page has two dissertations on SignWriting - one 300 page dissertation by Dr. Cecilia Flood from the University of New Mexico, and one in Arabic, with a partial translation into English, by Dr. Abushaira at Jordan University in Jordan. Both studied the use of SignWriting with Deaf children, and Dr. Abushaira's work was statistical -
If these kinds of titles are acceptable to you, then at least I know that. I am juggling many jobs simultaneously. I am trying to create a web page with lists of SignWriting publications, but I have been pulled into other projects in the past few days -
Happy Halloween, in the US!
