Oh Yes! I do mention your book, Richard. For those who are new to the List,
Richard is the author of a book that uses life-like illustrations, not
SignWriting. The illustrations are placed in a special sequence based on
the American Manual Alphabet and other details. And I have noticed the book
is discussed on other Internet Lists. Congratulations, Richard!

SignWriting's Sign-Symbol-Sequence is really quite different, and is not
just used for dictionaries, but also used for computer programming in a
number of ways. It even influences our keyboard design. Every time a person
types with the SignWriter computer program, even though they don't realize
it, they are learning the the SSS. So the Sequence is an integral part of
typing SignWriting.
