SignWriting List
August 23, 2000

Ok Nancy! Attached is the old document re-written in our modern
SignWriting. Here are some points:

1. I personally do not teach ASL (I sign to Americans, but I am not
an ASL teacher ;-)
2. No one should try to learn ASL from this document, since I have no
idea if it is good ASL or not.
2. This version is based on a document dated 1981. That is 19 years old!
3. There is a chance that the signer would not agree with his own
signing by now...
4. There is a chance that I mis-interpreted the old SignWriting,
which was beautifully written for that time, but now we write so
differently that I could have made a mistake...

So do not take this writing as is only one possible version,
and we should write many more versions. This version is written
horizontally. I will place it in vertical columns later.

Please write your own version, Nancy, and post it to the List. If you
don't know how to do this, that is OK! Just start asking questions
and we will help you, until it becomes easy for you ;-))

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And
to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all".
