Dear SW List:
Could someone help Deborah (see below)? She needs some basic ASL
signs, and basic ASL sentences, written in SignWriting. I am working
on fulfilling five orders for SW materials this morning...I look
forward to being online again when I am done....many thanks in
advance to anyone who can help Deborah.... ;-)

Subject: Information for a paper
Hello, my name is Deborah Sousa. I am a Linguistics student from the
University of Manitoba in Canada. I am writing a paper on ASL Writing
systems and my professor, Dr. Terry Janzen, told me to look at your
sight. What I've found so far has been very helpful and I think your
system is the best one I've seen so far. The problem I have is that I
do not speak ASL and I need a few words and sentences written in
SignWriting as an example for my paper. I was hoping that someone would
be able to transcribe the following into SignWriting, please.
The woman and man go to the house.
I (PRO.1) read a book.
The woman eats.
The man read the next page of the book.
I know the words and sentences are very simple, but I don't need
anything very complex and I think these sentences are ok for my paper.
Thank you for your time.
