Typannot: a glyphic system for the transcription of handshapes.

Typannot: un système de glyphes pour la transcription des formes manuelles

Typannot: un sistema di glifi per la trascrizione degli aspetti manuali


In the context of Sign Language (SL) study, three distinct functions can define a writing system: the abilities to read, write and search. None of the existing systems (SignWriting; HamNoSys) offers a good compromise. In this work, we present the construction of a graphematic system able to cover all SL handshapes existing in the world, consisting of features based on a phonological description. This multidisciplinary project, summoning type designers and linguists, aims at producing a readable and stable, unambiguous and fully searchable glyphic system that provides a relevant solution to the transcription of SL and the development of an accompanying writing system.
