One of the things I'm working on for my purposes is a "Soundex"-style
search for SW. The actual Soundex algorithm is here:

Anyway, it should be reasonably simple to work something similar for SW,
based partially on the visual noise findings in Klima and Bellugi. It
should be easy to include this in your SignBase, modulo some futzing
around in FileMaker :-)

Cheers,

Dan.
