<< So now I must ask you....above you mention the word "things" - I am not

"the symbols we use to write signs and gestures"? >>

Thanks for your response to my questions about sequence. I used the word
'things' in an effort to generalize the construct of a dictionary. I was
assuming that the purpose of a dictionary was to locate something from one
setting that could be translated into another setting. In my dictionary the
purpose for example is to locate a sign to be translated into an English
equivalent so the "thing" is in that case a sign. In you case the "thing"
might be a symbol that is to be translated into a movement, for example. The
purpose and its construct is the center of my lack of understanding.
