Subject: Re: Standardization of ASL

Replying to entire ASL thread.

I feel that the only way to get a true understanding of ASL and its variants is to have a literature available in Sign Writing to show its wide variety and beauty. English has poetry, ASL has poetry, English has Shakespeare, Twain, Shelley, Byron; I would hope that one day ASL authors are as well known for their styles and flairs with turns of phrase and language.

Now if I can just get my act together and send you all some of my feeble attempts at telling ASL stories.....(grin)
