SignWriting List
July 9, 2000

Bringing the subject back to SignWriting (grin), as a totally neutral
writing system, SignWriting can be used to tranlsate any book into
written Sign Language.

So the Bible is only one of many religious works being written in
American Sign Language now...

I believe someone else is attempting a translation of another
religious book from the Jewish faith?

And years ago, there was a group from the Mormon church translating
their Book of Mormon into ASL, and they tried to use SignWriting for
the written part of their work....

And I hope that other important world literature will become
available someday, such as the Koran and writings related to eastern

Val ;-)
