Hi Valerie

there is sooooo much to be done -

Yes! Isn't that the truth! But the limitations are only in the
software...not in SignWriting itself. You can still put the signs
into Sign-Symbol-Sequence by hand...

We already have a Sequence based on Sutton's Sign-Symbol-Sequence. It
is simply the software that needs to be developed. If you would like
to do some dictionaries by hand, in Sequence, I will be glad to teach


Well - in the future there are another four deaf kids waiting to join our
group . I will teach a combination first and second grade deaf children - an
the new pupils will have to learn SW and all the stuff from the very
beginning. We are already the "experienced" and I guess my friends would bw
happy about our very own and only and first SW-symbol -sequence - -- German

As you know. I do have your Sutton's Sign-Symbol-Sequence dictionary . I
should have again a look at it. But any additional advices are most welcome!

Stefan ;-)
