2.3 Sample writings in SignWriting
To give the reader a feel for signs written
in SignWriting, we reproduce here some signs and their approximate
glosses in English. The signs are taken both from the American
Sign Language (ASL) and the Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS).
On the Web, such signs are usually shown
in the GIF format, so that their rendering is immediate in any
browser. The SVG rendering of signs is analyzed in section 3.
