Adrean Clark, January 1, 2017. 'ASLwrite' writing system.
The new year greeting was written by Adrean Clark -- glossed as "HAPPY NEW YEAR 20|17".
ASL written by Jolanta Lapiak, 2013. 'si5s' writing system.
When I learned how to write ASL, using an ASL writing system (si5s), I tried writing this greeting message which was one of my first ASL written messages: "Merry Christmas and happy new year", 2013.
Before you jump to copying, note that there may be a few easily overlooked errors. As I acquired ASL writing more, I caught an error in this ASL verse.
Second, a si5s writing system is used in the message which I learned earlier. However, I'm currently using ASLwrite where it provides me and the Deaf/ASL community the freedom to contribute ideas to allow it evolve to more an efficient system.
