This happened;
The Sign language club at our school wanted to print up something to give
new visitors; someone suggested the manual alphabet; that idea was soundly
defeated, and in the process the idea came up that if you are willing to
learn 26 letters, why not learn 26 ASL signs--you could communicate pretty
well with those.
So now, the question is, which 26 signs? It occurs to me that somebody
must have compiled a frequency list (even if only mentally) of what signs
are needed most in Signing...........and of course I have the devious idea
that I could just write them out in Signwriting........
Anybody have any ideas about which signs to include??
