Hello  Maureen ,,,  and other BSL - SW-list members , ...

 

Thank you very much for your answer. It helps a lot to understand. 

 

Well ...mh ... how can anybody think that this kind of drawings ... mh... 

 

Documents written in SignWriting are tremendously better in any way. 

 

The reason that I am interested in these materials is the following. At
school we discuss to offer BSL – going along with learning English ...
instead of a mixture of DGS and English translation. 

 

I do not know whether we really need that ..but it would be helpful to offer
at least a few documents written in BSL ... 

 

I would love to start with the numbers from 1 to 20 and some nouns  (boy,
girl, teacher, cat, dog,...)    some Adjectives... (colours, deaf, hearing,
small, ...) 

 

Looking at the BSL Online dictionary which can be used with our great
delegs-Editor there are not too many entries right now... So we need more. 

 

Looking at online BSL - Videos  I  can see a lot of information coming from
the mouth – same happened when I looked at the deaf students visiting our
school this week. ... so our symbol set for “Mundbilder” would be helpful to
write the signs as the signers perform them. 

 

I would like to discuss that. Here is my question. 

 

I do not know who on the sw-list is in charge of the BSL  dictionary. 

 

Who is SP  ..the person that made most of the entries? 

 

 

 

All best Stefan

Hi again..  

 Yes,  Ive Heard  of and Have the  2 cds  that are needed to install on the
computer  to be
 able to design and print out   Sign language  pictures  with words.. 

this link will show you what widget is.. and there are some free  documents
that may be of use to you..


 <http://www.widgit.com/resources/bsl/sheets/>
<http://www.widgit.com/resources/bsl/sheets/>
http://www.widgit.com/resources/bsl/sheets/ 

 Its really for making flash cards.. posters etc  for people of all ages
learning sign language 
 and  for  teaching aids .  The Dictionaries  that you can buy   are  made
with these .
They  are very good  and I use alot of them as teaching  aids..  and
recommend our members 
to buy Cath Smiths.. products..

  The Widget could not be used for a Deaf person to write a letter or  story
in their own
sign language.      so  its completely  different to   SignWriting.. 

I Held a signwriting  workshop here in Southport. Merseyside and Have added
BSL SW signs 
to the British SW section. 
 
I cant understand why SW was never introduced into British Deaf schools
many years ago..
I know Deaf person  at the Deaf  centre in Southport that  could not read
nor write   he  went to 
  The Birkdale Deaf school  but it was ORAL  and didnt allow  signing.


I'm hard of  hearing.. and been doing  sign language  for 17 years.. and
also running my voluntary group
 to teach others  ,  Deaf people with no signing   and hearing people
needing or wanting to learn 
for many different reasons. .. 

 Ive sent  you an invitation by email  to join our  face book. group . 

my best regards..

Hi Maureen, 

 

thnak you for your message. 

 

Well this graphic is just an example This week we have had a Comenius week
at our school. Teams from Vienna (Austria),  Derby (England) and  Lubliniec
(Poland) visited our school. They came to my classroom and I have had a
short opportunity to demonstrate how we work so tremendously effectful with
the delegs-Editor. 

 

The people from England looked at it and made a comment that there is
already a pretty similar concept for BSL  ... “Widget”...kind of that ... I
forgot the exact term. 

 

 

Nevertheless it seems to me that this system is more kind of drawing people
with arrows describing what kind of movement ... and it is not online. There
must be some kind of Software-programm on a CD...  In a few weeks my
colleague will get the chance to visit them and to bring this software..

Hi Maureen do you know anything about that? 

 

 

I explained that with the Delegs-BSL – dictionary they would be able to
start immediately to write excercise sheets and SW-documents for their deaf
students ... May  be it has been a little bit too enthusiastic ..;-)  and
overwhelming when we wrote a few simple phrases in BSL . Anyway Tima did an
outstanding job to demonstrate that he was able to write English, BSL and
German... 

 

Would be a pleasure to send the BSL ABC  ... but where? Do you offer a link
.. so that I have not to search for hours?

 

Stefan
