We propose a way to define a formal representation of the signs of the French
Sign Language, that could be used to transcript signs in order to share sign
discourses without the use of videos.

\section{Overview}
\label{sec:overview}
We propose here a way to define a formal representation of the signs of the
French Sign Language. Each sign, named by at least one Name, contains a
configuration of shoulders and face, that will remain the same during the sign,
but also two pairs of hands configurations, which are the hands at the beginning
and the end of the sign. The \texttt{Move} item indicates the behaviour of the
hands between the beginning and the end of the movement.
It is possible to leave some parts as undefined with the Yaml null indicator
\verb|~|. The default values will then be used, with the following rule. Each
scalar value has a default value, which is detailed in this article, and the
default value of a non-scalar is defined by induction on its keys: all the
values of its key are default values. There are exceptions to this rule:
\texttt{Final} default values are the same as the initial state.
The default shoulders value is \texttt{rest}.
Each sign is described as a succession of states defined by the position, the
orientation and the shape of each hand, and the movement between two
states. Besides, we add to each sign a configuration of the face and the
shoulders. The signs are described using the markup language YaML. To sum up: no
unnecessary brackets, parentheses, markups. Only indentation. Each sign has:
\begin{itemize}
\item one or many {\it names}
\item a {\it type}, to indicate if it is a one-hand, two-hands, or symmetrical
sign
\item one or many {\it states}, describing the hands during the movement
\item one or many {\it moves}, describing the transitions during two states
\item a {\it facial unit}, describing an expression.
\item a {\it shoulder position}
\end{itemize}

\paragraph{case}
Every entry is written in CamelCase (acronyms are in full
uppercase). Parameters beginning with a capital letter are parameters containing
other parameters. The others take scalar values.

A French sign is traditionally written as its written transliteration between brackets (\verb|[]|). We observe here this convention.
