Of course not! No one is asking anyone to sign any differently than they
And the four examples I showed are only four...you can show us four new
examples...and what is so fascinating is that they can all be read well by
someone skilled in SignWriting.
So if you feel there are certain lingusitic principles that can be applied
to sign spellings, record lots of signs in SignWriting first, and then
write a paper on the theory of how to write compound signs...that would be
great information for everyone!
