Hmmmm. This is a HUGE answer!

So rather than overwhelming everyone, myself included (grin), I can share
with you that I have already started working on the beginnings of a
SignWriting Linguistics Forum that I hope to announce in the Fall. The
first article in the new Linguistics Forum will be an article comparing
notation systems. Three others and myself are working on this idea.

But this is not really answering your questions, Leslie! So I will give you
two articles to read on the web, that touch on these questions a little:

Controversial Approach to Communication:
SignWriting, The "Alphabet" of Signs
by Alexandra Han; Columnist
Published in Silent News, March 1999
http://www.SignWriting.org/sw215.html

SignWriting and American Sign Language
Bill Collins, December 2, 1997
http://www.SignWriting.org/sw203.html

Hope this helps....

Valerie :-)
