In the article I am revising I want to address briefly in a footnote the issue of ordering of signs
in SL dictionaries using SW. The reviewer of my article was speculating that Stokoe
might have chosen to arrange the elements of a sign in a linear fashion
to facilitate clear ordering of signs for the creation of dictionaries.
S/he wondered how this issue is handled for SW. I have a sense of how
the issue is approached, but I figured it was better to ask the list rather
than risk getting it wrong in print!
