It’s going slowly, but I’m still working my way through my books.
Found this comic on That Deaf Guy and found it to be appropriate.
ASL ≠ Indian Sign Language ≠ Maiden Handtalk
This is the challenge.
I still only have discovered three or four signs in MHT.
I will post them on the blog once I can pinpoint the reference.
But I still feel that the first thing I should post is “I have toh” because that’s the first thing that a Maiden learns.
But I need to dive in a little more into the culture of the Aiel. For instance, in the United States, when referring to ourselves, we point to our chests. In Asian cultures, a person will point to his face.
Where does the Aiel identify the “self”?
Such work to do!
