I’ll talk about the issues involved in developing a phonetic notation system for placement of the hands in signed languages. I will describe our earlier, more-abstract system, which involves a description of placement as a composite of active articulator (AA), focal site (FS: the passive articulator) and a set of spatial relationships between them.

Then I will identify a number of issues that arise when we attempt to develop a more-phonetic descriptive system that is at once able to account for lexically simple placement analogically motivated placement. I will identify a number of methodological questions that arise from this attempt.
