Interesting, translations of from English to “SignWriying.”
Translate “i need help” to SignWriting
In SignWriting, the phrase "I need help" can be written as follows:
[image: SignWriting for "I need help"]
This sign is composed of the following elements:
- The sign for "I" is written using the personal pronoun symbol, which
is a small circle placed on the shoulder.
- The sign for "need" is written using the symbol for desire, which is a
diagonal line with a small circle at the top and a larger circle at the
- The sign for "help" is written using the symbol for assistance, which
is a diagonal line with a small circle at the top and a downward-pointing
triangle at the bottom.
Note that this is just one way to write "I need help" in SignWriting, and
there may be other ways to represent the same phrase. It's also worth
noting that SignWriting is a written system for representing sign
languages, and it is not a signed language itself. It is intended to be
used as a tool for writing down and transcribing signed languages, rather
than being used as a means of communication in and of itself.

I just found out that chatGPT can translate between English words and ASL
as English movements!
