Hi Adam,
    I am working with Charles on finding a better way for sorting.  So thatīs a bit what Charles was explaining to you some of the issues.  I know he also asked last week about locations on the hands.  I know Val was off for a well deserved break.  But we are still wondering about that too  I believe itīs the same as number 1 and 2 in Syllable 4.

I asked about the Syllable 4 below because am adding SignSpelling Sequence suggestion function to SignWriter Studio.   There will be two suggestion types,  one that follows Valīs sw0534-SignSpellingGuidelines-2008.pdf and another for what we are developping with Charles.

So far I have been able to automate a great part of setting the sequence for a sign from the symbols in a sign (no special location) for SignSpellingGuidelines-2008.  I have done Sylables 1-3 with a great measure of success so long as there arenīt more than four hands and a couple movement symbols.  For composite signs like "Good morning" in Honduran Sign Language itīs not great at all, but otherwise I think that it is a time saver.

But I got to Syllable 4: Detailed Sorting and I need some examples of signs sorted that have these features.  I am thinking that many of these would also be the special location symbol that arenīt used in everyday writing.

Thank you for the two examples you found.  That was helpful.

As for the neck, I found this sign with SignSpelling Sequence.

For the shoulder, I found this sign with SignSpelling Sequence.
