Formal SignWriting (FSW) is the cornerstone of the SignPuddle Standard for SignWriting Text
Starting with FSW, the rest of the standard is involved and derived.
Formal SignWriting is...
A sign is written as a word with 2 parts.
The first part is for visual display in 2-dimensions based on math.
The second part is for sorting in 1-dimension based on history.
All sign languages are supported.
Any sign is possible.
The writer chooses the spelling.
A small footprint, easy transformations, and fast processing makes Formal SignWriting a powerful choice for representing sign language as text.
