Yes, it is. But I think that even if English, as Norwegian, has the 'I'
first in this sentence, it should not be so in the dictionary. The look-up
word should be 'help'. And wes should strive to write the English (or
Norwegian ) correctly, exept when glossing. Thus, in my oponion, the name
of this sign should be HELP_I_help_you. Then the logic of looking these
signs up would be main sign - subject - object.
