I recently heard that the WoT language department is/ has been working with the Deaf Community to create an entirely new form of sign language.

I for one always wanted to learn Maiden Hand Talk, and now it looks like it will be possible in the near future.

@Leala ni al'Dareis t'al'Caleum you may be Aes SedaI but we both know you're not so secretly an Aiel at heart.

This would be great! I hope that basing it off an existing language will make it more impactful.

I was also worried they would just get rid of that plot point altogether, as it may be difficult to explain.

In case anyone's interested: you can follow @maiden.handtalk on insta. I put a few thoughts up there before I realised that the show was going to do whatever it wanted and that my time was not being well spent lol

They may only give us a simplified version of it, in which case your efforts could be instrumental for expanding it into a full fledged language.

Don't give up on it yet :hug
