Hello Mo and Everyone -
Hmmm. These are good questions but hard to answer in a few words.

Have you read this?

SignWriting History

There is an article about the evolution of writing styles in the
history section...





One of those questions is:

How Are SignWriting Symbols Invented?
The inventor discusses the creative process
of developing symbols used around the world...

I would read all of the questions and answers too...

Now that you have a reading assignment - grin - write again if you have
more questions! smile...

Val ;-)
