<< I think it is good that you have the link to SignWriting. Are you involved
in the production of this book? While this isn't the "Webster's" approach,
it certainly goes a step further than mere glossing. I wonder if the
authors knew SW or would consider using SW as a supplement to their diagrams?
Just wondered, >>
The dictionary was published two years ago in an effort to have a sign
reference in which one can find a sign without knowing its meaning and
escaping the dependence on English. I, as author, considered SW but I'm
afraid Gallaudet is still ignorant of its importance.
Thanks for your input.
