Subject:  Notation Systems


Hello!

I know, I know, I am sure that, as a list dealing with signs and writing,
you must have had the following question a squillion times before...
Forgive me for asking again since I am new to the list and have not read
previous discussions.
Has anyone compared different notation systems for signed languages as to
different purposes for different systems? I mean, for example, SignWriting
is obviously used to actually write things down for people to read.
HamNoSys on the other hand, and other systems too, are aimed more at the
linguistic side of the language. Its main purpose is to transcribe signs in
order to analyse them.
That kind of thing.
If you have had this discussion before, could anyone please send me a summary?
Thanx.

Susanne
