Subject: New Posting: "SW and ASL" Article
April 15, 1999
Dear SW List -
Please see a new article just posted on our web site:
"SignWriting and American Sign Language"
It is a paper that was written for a course in ASL Linguistics at Delaware
Technical and Community College, in December, 1997, by Bill Collins.
I think you will find that Bill did a good job. He based most of his
material on information found on our web site, and in our information
packet....however....towards the end of the article, he includes email
discussions with people who were both "for and against" reading and writing
signs. The discussions were taken from such public forums as "the Deaf
List" (DEAF-L). Several people felt that videotape was better than writing
signs, for example.
Hope you enjoy the article!!
