From a programming standpoint, it looks like we need to be able to
group several SignWriting entries under one lexeme. The easiest way
I can think of is create a Lexeme entry, then tag each related
SignWriting entry with that lexeme entry. Then it would be possible
to print out a dictionary with SignWriting entries grouped by

One of the reasons that the SignPuddle dictionaries can't be
considered dictionaries in the linguistics sense is that there are
multiple entries for the same lexeme. (And lexeme has a very
specific definition that doesn't exactly mean what you were
talking about, Charles). I personally think that is just fine
because we are not trying to be a dictionary in the linguistics
sense exactly. We might improve and become closer, but the
purposes are completely different.
