Hi Jonathan,

For constructed hand shapes, choose a hand shape from the ISWA 2010 that 
is close to where you would like constructed hand shape to sort.  Use 
this chosen hand shape in the SignSpelling Sequence. It would be best if 
the hand shape wasn't used in the target language.

A group would need to agree and it wouldn't be perfect, but it would 
allow for sorting to a certain degree.
