Before creating new signs
Before adding a new sign to the lexicon, first make sure you are not adding the same sign form twice under different glosses by:
- Checking the already existing glosses;
- Checking the field Translation variants to see whether the sign is already present under a different translation of the sign.
- If the sign can be translated in multiple ways, but you can’t find the word you have in mind in the Gloss field or the Translation variants field, you can check by selecting the phonological features of the sign and see whether your sign is already in the lexicon but under a different translation (if so, make sure you add your meaning in the Translation variants field).
