> 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
> 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!
