Subject: ASL & Scripting
This comment on American Sign Language by Elouise Oyzon may be of interest
to some of the readers of Humanist that took particular interest in the
dance steps to coding thread.
ASL structures things similarly to a sequence one would find in a script
(understanding this is a spatial language).
Time first. When. Where. (Scenario is painted). Who. (Actors, nouns
introduced). What. (Then the actors do).
