<< Where do you interpret and how are you thinking of using SignWriting with
your work? >>
I work at Northern Illinois University. I'm thinking of using SignWriting to
keep a record of new ASL vocabulary. We have a large vocabulary file in our
office but often the English descriptions of signs are unclear or inaccurate.
Some of my co-workers and I plan to learn SignWriting so we can share
information more precisely.
I'm sorry I don't know the reference for the children of Deaf adults study.
I heard it on a radio news report about a year ago and I don't remember who
conducted the reasearch. I wish I could be more helpful.
