Dan -
Could you please explain in a non-linguist lay person's terms what
this kind of search would do for us? Can you give me an example if
you were searching in English for an English word, in this Soundex
style....

I did go to their web page briefly, but I had trouble getting a
handle on what we would be doing for SignWriting...

I have to explain this to our programmer, who knows nothing of
linguistics or sign language...but he has programmed sophisticated
searches before in FileMaker, so I just have to explain it properly...

Val ;-)
