Hello Val and all,
The problem with an encyclopedic article is that it have to be "complete", so we can't just speak about SW. It have to be something on all the writting systems made for representing SL (Bébian, Stokoe, HamNosys, SignFont, SignWriting... just to say some of them), for transcription purposes or for writing purposes. So it will be a bigger work than (as I read on your answer) you imagin.
Maybe if they think to do a part on writing systems we can do a sub-part of the article speaking about SW....
Maybe we can write to the authors and ask if it's possible for them to ad a part on SL representation... and then send a paper about SW. But if we make this then we will be "obliged" to submitt something... is there some of us that directly knows the authors? So that we can "test the playground" (italian expression)
This said... in my opinion SW as nothing to do in the part "phonetic", beacause is like saying that the explanation on latin alphabet have to be in the phonetic part of a french language encyclopedia...

If academic credentials are the crux of it, I can also potentially propose an entry on transcription and writing systems. It would be good for me to have a deeper understanding of the alternative systems out there. Maybe Adam and I could co-author something? Or Claudia, you would certainly be well positioned to write such a piece...

Perhaps Adam Frost, as a Gallaudet graduate, could propose an Encyclopedia article on determining ASL handshapes as a linguistic search. They seem to be requiring academic credentials. Also, perhaps a Libras Letras graduate from the University of Santa Catarina could contribute an article on Libras transcription in education.

My credentials of study as an associate with the UCPRS may not be sufficient, but I could try to propose something. I would need extensive help in linguistic terminologies.

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) :-(
