I enjoyed your symposium “Ordering Signs
in Dictionaries” http://www.signwriting.org/symposium/presentation0010.html
I was wondering if Steve and Val had been able
to find you a solution. Val mentioned that she thought
that Steve would have an easy way for you to do your
I would like to implement a sorting algorithm for
SignWriter Studio as I haven't implemented any yet and I
am starting to produce a Honduran Sign Language
I understood how you are doing the ordering comparing hand
shapes, comparing rotations, comparing facings, comparing
facial areas, etc. I like it very much.
A couple things I wanted to ask.
For your algorithm to work properly does the sign sequence
of a sign need to be filled out? I am getting the
impression that your sorting could sort dictionaries
without the sign sequence, is this assumption correct? Or
would it sort signs according to the symbols in sign
sequence? It doesn't seem to take into account the order
of the symbols in the sign sequence, is this correct?
Also do you have another document comparing the other
symbols like movement symbols, etc? If so could you send
it to me?
