Hello! I'm a linguistic anthropologist and I used sw to transcribe interactions in Nepali Sign Language for my research. This was largely transcribing from video I recorded in the field, not so much for taking field notes. But I think it could be very useful in that regard if you become a skilled writer.

Hy! I'm Gustavo Godoy from Brazil, student of Anthropology/Ethnology. I am planning to study the Ka'apor Indians Sign Language, in "Pre-Amazonia" forest. 

Anybody discuss the use of SW for writing fieldnotes? (And not for make a system of writing).

Sorry for the bad English!
