SignWriting List
April 17, 2012

Thank you, Bill - Celebrations are coming - Slowly but surely people will become more aware of the new features in SignPuddle 2 - One of the most important ones, I think, is searching by Symbol Frequency, not only on dictionary entries, but on SignText documents -

So imagine, in the ASL Bible Puddle, which has the complete four Gospels written in ASL in SignWriting now …hundreds and hundreds of pages...imagine asking SignPuddle to find how many times the Index Finger is used throughout the 4 Gospels in ASL… or how many times a certain facial expression is combined with a certain handshape throughout all the documents…that kind of research can provide good data for linguists I think...

I remember several years ago a linguist wanted to be able to search by symbol frequency on documents, and at that time we could not…well now we can!

I am excited about it...

Val ;-)
