I am wondering if it is possible to print a word list the
same way using signs, not gloss, so that one pulls out unique
sign lists using a starting hand shape.
No. I've thought about this, but haven't implemented it yet. It
should be an easy addition to the query language and very valuable.
I will probably add it to the next edition of
draft-slevinski-signwriting-text which I need to update for next
month. It should only take a few hours to add to the query language
to regular expression convertor.
The syntax would probably be QAS10000 for all signs that have a sign
spelling sequence that starts with the index symbol
Alternately, the query QAS100uu would find all of the signs that
start with the same symbol without regards to fill or rotation.
This leads to an additional complication of QAS10000S20500 versus
QS20500AS10000, where S20500 is the single contact.
The first query (QAS10000S20500) would find the signs that have a
sign spelling sequence that starts with the index followed by the
contact. The second query would find the signs that have a sign
spelling sequence that starts with the index and includes a contact
somewhere in the sign. Subtle but powerful distinction.
