Last, but not least, I kiss the feet of cover designer extraordinaire Leigh Ann Britt. She took what could have been a run-of-the-mill cover and transformed it into something special.
Some of the characters in "All in the Family" sign. Sam, one of the main characters, uses pidgin sign, which is American Sign Language signs in English word order. Articles such as "a," "an" and "the" are not used, nor are word endings such as -ing. Regardless of who is signing and which sign system the character uses, the dialogue reflects how the words would appear translated in English (how the characters would write the words, if they were writing and not signing). For example, Sam might sign: "I go store" but her dialogue would be recorded as: "I'm going to the store."
Think of it along these lines: modern books set in olden English times are not actually written in olden English.
