Declaration of Independence
These, of course, were made after the very different British Sign Language and American Sign Language were invented. Which language would more suit the recipient of the original Declaration? The BSL or ASL?
Odd, since the Declaration was meant to be read, and was not intended as a performance work for speaking aloud. I should think it would be much more interesting to see what Laurie Anderson calls “the B side of the National Anthem”: Yankee Doodle.
In fact, I think I will post about that now.
hey–the first video is private. Can you fix this?
Our apologies, but only the individual who posts the video to youtube can control the settings. I’ve left that first one up even though it’s now set to private.
And I’ve added a third video, a translation by Ira Rothenberg.
