Thanks so much. I printed it out and it looks very nice. I just wish I knew
German Sign Language!
I noticed that there are 22 rows. Does this correspond to the German
alphabet? In English, we have 26. Which of the following should I remove
to have an accurate alphabetical rendering of your SW Sound Set?
Even without knowing what letters corresponde with each face, I have
already gleaned a helpful hint--the overlapping faces are a good idea, and
may be what I need for pa, pi, pu, and po. I just recently learned that u,
and au are used as well in differentiating some verb tenses.
