Dear Ron and SW List Members -
I have now posted one short passage of Ron's bible translation on the web:

Luke 22:29 in American signs

Here is my challenge to members of the SignWriting List:

1. Visit the web page.

2. Read the SignWriting down in columns. You will see that I posted the
typing exactly as Ron sent it to me. Most signs have an English word under
them, but some do not. I did not reduce the SignWriting or "make it pretty"
because this is a first draft.

3. What facial expressions are needed?

4. What grammar needs to be corrected to make "good ASL"?

5. Write to the SignWriting List, and post your suggestions.

We all can discuss it. Then later, Ron can retype the document, and I will
re-post the improved version.

Look forward to your input!!

Valerie :-)
