Sharpen Your Skills: Foreign Language Braille.
Childers, Alice M.
National Braille Association Bulletin, v18 n1, 3, 4 Spr, Fall 1982 Win 1983
Three short articles about foreign language braille are presented for braille transcribers and teachers of the visually handicapped. Because dictionaries of languages other than English rarely show syllable division, the articles provide guidelines to the syllabication of Spanish, French, and German. The guidelines give specific rules concerning the division of diphthongs and consonantal units, adverbial prefixes, and compound words. Although the guidelines will not provide for every eventuality, they will cover most situations likely to be encountered. (LH)
