We are in the process of writing a grant proposal to place a statistician
in the School for Deaf in Bluefields, Nicaragua for this very purpose,
since we use SW a great deal and are constantly producing more texts in SW.

If a qualified statistician or linguist or educator has an interest in
coming to Nicaragua for such a study, please contact me.
