SignWriting List
November 11, 2010

Hello Dali!
Wonderful to hear from you. I am happy to know you saw the video, and yes, you were mentioned several times....I wish I had more time in the presentation to talk about your writing of Tunisian Sign Language, and the fact that you are teaching SignWriting in Tunisia.

This presentation was done at the very last minute. I was invited to speak, but explained that I could not travel to Tunisia in person, but I could present on Skype. I suggested to them, that if I could not present on Skype, that perhaps you could present... however the Skype was arranged...

Do you live near the Basma center? Perhaps you could present SignWriting there...

On the Basma Center's web page, they have this contact information:

I also started a new web page about SignWriting in Tunisia, which I plan to expand later, to include more of your documents:

SignWriting in Tunisia

Thank you, Dali, for writing Tunisian Sign Language - it is very important work -

And I hope your work is going well in Tunisia... please send my regards to your co-workers -

Val ;-)
