Subject: Re: Standardization of ASL
Replying to entire ASL thread.
I feel that the only way to get a true understanding of ASL
and its variants is to have a literature available in Sign Writing
to show its wide variety and beauty. English has poetry, ASL
has poetry, English has Shakespeare, Twain, Shelley, Byron; I
would hope that one day ASL authors are as well known for their
styles and flairs with turns of phrase and language.
Now if I can just get my act together and send you all some of
my feeble attempts at telling ASL stories.....(grin)
