He he my cheeky daughter, wait to I see her later ;-)
Yes I too think sign language is truly a beautiful language, and extremely useful when in noisy places. That is a very interesting book Open mike, that and many others.
Yes folk le I can relate to what you say about it looked almost musical.
What I believe is interesting is when you apply for a job there can be a section on other languages, asking you to tick any that you speak, I note there is NEVER anything about BSL (British Sign Language) or SSE (Sign Supported English) or any of sign language i.e. Aslan etc etc, I ALWAYS add BSL as this is a recognised language in its own right, it has its own BSL grammar, syntax, construction and multi-channel signs etc. I also add SSE.
Oh better stop here or I will go on and on as it's a subject and issue I feel extremely strongly about.
