SignWriting List
April 14, 2002

Dear SW List Members:
For those who do not live in the United States, you may wonder why
the New York Times article seems so important? Years ago, before
there were so many news organizations, the New York Times was the
most prestigious newspaper in the United States. So even though it
says "New York" in the title of the newspaper, it is actually read
all over the United States...not just in New York. List members from
Mississippi and New Mexico have already received the New York Times
this morning on their doorsteps...I know because they wrote to me

The last time SignWriting got publicity in a big newspaper in the US,
was back in 1983, in the Los Angeles Times...So you can see that
people here have not known much about SignWriting...I hope that other
publicity will grow from this NY Times article....

I would love your feedback about the article - I know the linguists
and teachers on this List must have feelings about what is said, and
your feedback is really important -

So I look forward to your comments!

Many blessings -

Val ;-)
