SignWriting List
January 27, 2002

Hello Shannon!
Thank you for sharing your classroom experience with us. I appreciate
your message... It sounds like your course at UCSD (University
California at San Diego) is going well ;-)

This made me think of Joe Martin, who worked so hard on his paper
comparing SignWriting and the Stokoe system:

A Linguistic Comparison: SignWriting and Stokoe Notation
by Joe Martin

Joe attended Gallaudet last year, and since then, I have not heard
from him...Does anyone know how to contact Joe? His old email
addresses do not seem to work for me...Joe...if you are reading this,
please write - Hope you are doing well?...

Val ;-)
