SignWriting List
March 1st, 2013

Hello Stuart, Adam, and everyone!

Thank you, Stuart, for posting this survey….I hope many Deaf ASL signers will take the survey…I wish we hearing people were allowed to take it too ;-)

The ASL Wikipedia will someday grow and as it grows I think it will encourage the reading and writing of ASL and other sign languages.

We now have two more articles posted in the ASL Wikipedia. I will post information about that shortly …

Val ;-)

Hello, all! A student at the University of North Dakota is working on her MA thesis. Her topic is to survey Deaf thoughts and attitudes about reading and writing ASL. She has asked me if I would be willing to help her spread the word about her MA research.

Your honest views and opinions are greatly appreciated … 

Would you be willing to do one or more of the following…?

1) participate in her anonymous survey (

2) pass the survey link ( to other Deaf friends through email, Facebook, or other media

3) post a copy of the attached flyer in places where Deaf will see it

Your assistance to her is greatly appreciated. The more data she has, the better her research results will be.
