Thanks. I appreciate you pointing out the disadvantages of glossing. Do
you have any examples of SignWriting that demonstrate these limitations?
The use of SignWriting is still evolving. I can see the problem if people
become accustomed to simplifing their language to fit an imperfect tool.
They may view SignWriting as flawed, when it is actually the glossing.
I hope that they would become interested in SignWriting and then
dissatisfied with glossing. This would lead to people willing to invest the
time to learn a real tool like SignWriter. Or they may even create a tool
better than SignWriter.
