Thank you for your lovely message. It was wonderful. I shared it with ASL
Access, and I know they were real pleased too :-)
To answer your question above...
Yes. That is correct. The thick line at the end of a sentence is like a
period in written English. The thick line means "the end of a thought".
Two thin lines means "a short pause", like a comma in written English.
SignWriting has a whole list of punctuation symbols, which you will find in
the Lessons In SignWriting Textbook.
Very happy to hear that your daughter is learning SignWriting with you -
that is great!
And Merry Christmas to you too!!
