Dear SW List Members:
The first release of SignBank 2002, at the end of this month, is the
starting point for a new era. We will be sorting and printing
dictionaries by Sign-Symbol-Sequence on a regular basis.
I therefore worked hard in August to finalize a "final numbering
system" for the SSS that is flexible but sensible and easy to learn.
It is important that a Deaf child, age 6, can find signs in a
SignWriting dictionary quickly, visually and easily.
The SSS-2002 is the name of the Sequence we will be using for the
next two years. It is the "default Sequence" for SignBank 2002.
I am hoping to do a new release of SignBank every two years. SignBank
2004 can incorporate any changes needed to the SSS.
So the new SSS-2002 is now officially posted on the web:
These are only the "Base Symbols", without their rotations and variations....
I will also be writing a manual explaining the logic behind the
Sequence. The new SSS manual will be included in SignBank 2002.
You can see I am keeping busy!
