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 lexeme.

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.
