Hello Eduardo and welcome to our SignWriting family all over the world. 

Well to learn to read and write the ABC of the Sign Language in Uruguay
should not be a difficult task - smile 

What we need to support you in doing so is a reference Video - that shows
the performance of these hand shapes. Do you know of a internet - video that
shows the ABC in your Sign Language?  

Do we already have a SignPuddle Dictionary for Uruguay. 

Perhaps you can ask Valerie .... smile! 

It will take some time to become a good scribe but it is so easy to learn to
read SignWriting. There are already some very good tutorials, teaching

The best way is to start with well known signs (numbers, letter, country
signs, signs that explain themselves - to swim, to smoke, to sleep, house, )

Just start to ask questions following the rule: one email - one question -- 

All the best and a wonderful start with this amazing invention of Valerie

What is the indigenous sign for "Uruguay"  - just hand shape "U" or
additional rotation movement?

Betreff: Beginner in Uruguayan Sign Language


I've been taking classes for only three weeks, so you can safely
consider me a total beginner in Sign Language.  I'd like to use
SignWriting for taking notes and to contribute at least the signs for
the alphabet in our language.

I work as software localizer and SignWriting is also very interesting
from that point of view.  I hope to keep on learning about it from the
existing documentation and the exchanges on the list.

Cheers, Eduardo.
