That would be a considerable project. One of my objections to the KJV is
its formal equivalence translation philosophy. Some modern transaltions
(perhaps, NKJV, NRSV) are also formal in philosophy. These can be tagged
with Strong's numbers fairly easily. However, any meaning-based
translations such as my preferred CEV would be a lot harder to give
equivalence original words and English expressions.

British Sign Language is not inarticulate handwaving; it's a living language.
Support the campaign for formal recognition by the British government now!
