texts. The kids work with pages in signwriting or texts from their
signwritten books and they underline and annotate in different colors things
like noun, verb, adj, adverb, pronoun as well as subject, object etc. This is
something that could be done with ASL texts as well and might prove useful to
someone like Cheryl, even more useful than a grammar lesson per se in SW.

I comment the effort to "tag" ASL texts. Now we need to prepare them so
that they can be tagged. This will be long doing but a good effort. I
need to find a good ASL signer in my area to sit with for hours to
simply start with "good" ASL and end with "good" English. It's like
relearning ASL to voice interpreting all over again.
