Subject: Re: ZURICH: Some general questions
what I am doing in these cases is to add this special "tilde" ( = tension
symbol) SSW No ???? )
to that hand to indicate that this handshape has been used during a whole
phase of signing ..
I think we should not add any artificial (graphic) components to the SW -
symbol Set .. ;-)
Have a look at my gif. This is a video -transcription of a competent Deaf
signer - I learned a lot during transcribing about the function of the left
hand and used this tension - symbol to support a fluent reading.
Here are some general questions that have cropped us as the Noah notation
2. In notating sign text, do you already have some convention to show that
a sign is held by one hand through the production of following signs? Just
to notate it with a normal handshape symbol seems somewhat odd, as it looks
like it's a part of the formation of the current sign, rather than the
continuation (holding) of a previous sign.
We can use PhotoShop to make the ,retained' sign grayer or something. But
maybe there is some way to show this directly in SW?
