It uses visual symbols to represent the handshapes, movements, and facial expressions of signed languages. SignWriting is based on Sutton DanceWriting, a notation system for representing dance movements which Valerie Sutton developed in 1972. SignWriting is a "movement-writing-alphabet", which can be used to write any signed language. It is the written form of 27 Sign Languages. The SignWriting alphabet writes the way the body looks, when people sign, just as the Roman alphabet writes the way words sound, when people speak.
