Hi everybody out there!
I am new on the list and I'd like to introduce myself. I am a student of
sign language at the University of Hamburg, Germany. I have been interested
in the notation of signed languages ever since I started university four
years ago and have, for the past two-and-a-half years, been working in one
of the projects in our department. We have worked on a dictionary for
technical terms in the field of joinery and one of my tasks was to
supervise HamNoSys transcription and to transcribe all of our glosses for
the book and the CD-ROM version.
I'd of course like to get to know more about different systems as so far I
only know a little of the adapted version of Stokoe-Notation in the BSL
Dictionary and pits and pieces of various other systems, such as
Institut für Deutsche Gebärdensprache und Kommunikation Gehörloser
