I am doing research on different ways sign language can be written. I have seen a distinction between 'writing systems' and 'notation systems'. While looking around I found this book:
Signs, Symbols and Icons: Pre-history to the Computer Age
by Sassoon, Rosemary.; Gaur, Albertine.
In chapter 7 she talks about a system called 'Sign Graphics' developed by Sara Head when she was a teacher at the Royal School for the Deaf in Derby. There is suppose to be an article in Laserbeam summer 1992 about it. I cannot find anything on the web about it, but googleing 'Sign Graphics' is pretty pointless - unless you need a new sign for your business.
Does anyone know anything about it? Is it still in use?
It appears the system was created to help Deaf students learn English, kind of a bridge between BSL and English.
Thanks for the help,
