Hi Angus -
Thanks for this offer! That is very nice of you. For right now, I would
like to stick with HamNoSys, SignWriting and the Stokoe system. We can
always consider other systems later.
Once the SignWriting Linguistics Forum is established on our web site, then
we will have occasional Special Features highlighting the use of
SignWriting in linguistics, and we can always add more to the comparisons
article...it seems to be a topic of interest.
Another linguist, Joe Martin, also offered to help. So perhaps one of you
could do the Stokoe system? After the February 15th Special Feature is
posted (the advanced reading article), let's talk about it.
Thanks once again for your help -
