Hi,
yes, that's true, I am comparing different writing systems for sign
languages. The goal is to have an overview on respective merits and
shortcomings of a system, the background why and by whom it was
developed and what the goal were when it was developed. Since this
is only a masters thesis and not a doctoral thesis :-) there is not
time for all the systems. Therefore I made a choice of 5 systems,
namely (in that order): Stokoe-Notation, SignWriting, HamNoSys,
Intersys and SOSO. Intersys is being designed as a writing system
for everyday use by Thomas-Gert Baier in G÷ttingen/Germany. Mr Baier
started his approach in 1998 and there is not much public literature
on his system. SOSO is short for Semantic Oriented Sign Orthography.
Sonja Erlenkamp (Norway&Germany) designed it for her dissertation, it
is also a rather new approach.
Hope this is what you wanted to know - I'll be happy to tell you more.
(Stefan - did you get my personal mail (8.1.02)?)
Susanne
