Looking at your document
Nancy – I have a question. (Same question goes to Adam ;-)) )

the US- SignPuddle Dictionary. I do not get the same signs this way. Does this
mean that you write this kind of document from scratch with SignText?
I generally write from scratch with SignText, although there are times
that I will use the translate feature for some bases and then edit it in

Like I said in my original email, I am not sure how I would truly sign
this sentence if I were with my friends and trying to convey the same thought.
Yes, the signing of WITH is influenced by the original sentence having the word
"with" in it. I went with it because I felt that it would be
understood by most as to what is meant. (But that is also because most ASL
users that I know are bilingual, especially the Deaf ones.) I might do another
attempt at the sentence now that I have seen Cherie's writing and had some time
to think it over.
