I agree that we should contribute an article to this encyclopedia. For me it would fit under Sign Language Phonetics as the whole HOLMES system is made into an iconographic system within SW.

Sad to see that there is nothing about SL Writing or SL Graphic Representation (I don't only think about SW, but also abour HamNoSys, Stokoe Notation etc.) and nothing about Iconicity (as the Cuxac point of view) :-(
