hi all,
please note that the notation used in the BSL/English dictionary is not
entirely the same as the stokoe notation in his ASL dictionary. the people
who worked on the BSL dict. have made quite a numer of adaptations (which,
i don't know) to suit their purposes. i believe mary brennan and graham
turner were involved if you have any more questions to that.
regards, susanne
