Movement Writing Alphabet

The International Movement Writing Alphabet, The IMWA, SSS-2004
Sutton Movement Writing is the International Movement Writing Alphabet (the IMWA). It is used to record all human and animal gesture. The IMWA can be compared to the International Phonetic Alphabet for spoken languages, but instead, the IMWA records the details of movement-based-languages. Since it is a large, broad-based writing system, Sutton Movement Writing has been specified for five separate movement fields: SignWriting, for writing the movements of Sign Languages, DanceWriting, for writing dance choreography, MimeWriting, for writing classic mime, SportsWriting, for writing ice skating and gymnastics routines, and MovementWriting, for writing all gesture.
