<DIV>Yes, yes, yes. fabulous Valerie. I've reviewed all the figures so far, and they are clean. I hope we can get a clean Libras list from this catalogueing so we are all talking about the same handshapes.</DIV>

<BLOCKQUOTE class=replbq style="PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #1010ff 2px solid">SignWriting List<BR>July 11, 2004<BR><BR>Dear SignWriting Listers:<BR>The International Movement Writing Alphabet (IMWA), SSS-2004, is a <BR>listing of all of the symbols in SignWriting and DanceWriting. There <BR>are 50 groups of symbols. I am finalizing each group of symbols, one by <BR>one.<BR><BR>Today I posted Group 01-05: Five Fingers. It is a large group...42 <BR>handshapes. Some are unusual, since some are used more in DanceWriting <BR>than SignWriting. And some of the unusual handshapes come from Irish <BR>Sign Language...like flat hands that have a space between the middle <BR>and index fingers....and also I added some variations of relaxed <BR>fingers forward...Ingvild...perhaps you could check to see if your need <BR>is solved now?...Take a look at the PDF for Five Fingers...<BR><BR>To download the PDF documents, or the graphics files for each group, go <BR>to thi!
page:<BR><BR>SSS-2004 Group Folders and PDF Documents<BR>http://www.SignBank.org/symbolbank/sss2004list.html<BR><BR>I am now working on Group 01-06: Baby Finger (hands that relate to the <BR>baby finger in some way)...<BR><BR>This is slow work. I have been cleaning up inconsistencies in the <BR>rotations. It is good that I am doing that, but it means re-numbering <BR>thousands of symbols...some can be re-numbered quickly with specialized <BR>software, but others have to be re-numbered manually, since there is no <BR>consistent pattern...and then these new numbers have to be re-entered <BR>into the SymbolBank database...smile...<BR><BR>I pray this work will benefit the world...A consistent symbolset should <BR>lead to better software ...and better software may lead to increased <BR>sign language literacy...<BR><BR>I hope someone will answer this message, so I can see if the List is <BR>working!!...smile...<BR><BR>Val ;-) <BR><BR><BR>To unsubscribe: send mail to
