Subject:  question to linguists...


just shortly:
would you agree with me that SignWriting is a logographic script?

(to say it with the original words of A. Fok et.al.: has a
logographic ortographic structure in contrast to the
alphabetic ortographic structure of written english, spanish,
german, etc.)

thanks
