Examples of SiLOrB in Use

(Versión en español aquí)


This page shows how SiLOrB transcription and orthographic representations can be used on actual signs. A detailed and a general description is given for some, as users may choose to include a level of detail consistent with a certain language’s phonology or another intended purpose. Signs are from Sivia Sign Language (LSSiv) and American Sign Language (ASL).
