The general purpose of this study is to analyze the importance of comparing the systems of Writing Sign Languages, SignWriting, and EliS, regarding their history and concise evolution, the characteristics of these writing systems used in Brazil, and if these systems use efficiently the Libras grammar. This evaluation was made through the analytical and descriptive study of these writing Sign Languages. In this study, the published books Escrita de Sinais sem mistérios from Madson Barreto and Raquel Barreto (2015), and ELiS: Sistema brasileiro de escrita das línguas de Sinais from Mariângela Estelita Barros (2015) were analyzed. We sought the authorization to use this published material in this study once they were written through these writing sign language. The specific goals of this research were: a) to analyze the Libras' structure characteristics regarding the equivalence between SignWriting and ELiS systems; b) to present the number of glyphs registered in these writing sign systems, and c) to show the analysis and discussions effectiveness related to the convergences and divergences in Writing Signs on each system (SignWriting and ELiS). The methodology adopted was based on Barreto e Barreto (2015) which classifies the theoretical studies of books produced according to the structure of each Writing Signs system. The procedures adopted for this study consisted of three stages: bibliographical research, data collection, and comparative analysis. The first stage consisted of bibliographical research, including published books. In the second stage, the data collection was made. This phase included books for reading and writing from these systems for an evolving interpretation by the researcher. The researcher aimed to understand if the information on the Libras' grammar were equal to SignWriting and ELiS Writing Sign. In the third stage, the comparative analysis was made to apply the rules to the cases of Writing Sign Languages' systems. These cases have confirmed the researcher s hypothesis. The data analysis was obtained through a bibliographic study with two authors of SignWriting, and an author of ELiS. In response to the questioning, it was possible to present the characteristics of Writing Sign systems (SignWriting and ELiS) in the development of its comparative analysis. In the analysis and discussion of the results, research data were presented and they have shown that SignWriting and ELiS have presented characteristics equal to Libras in the registered systems in a descriptive analysis between SignWriting and the ELiS systems.
