[view]Phonological System: Humans/Humanoid (signed)Modified Sign Language IPA (MSLIPA), a way of transcribing signed languages heavily based on David Peterson's Sign Language IPA (SLIPA). Most of the credit goes to him and his work on the system. The original version can be found at

Handshapes are directly taken from SLIPA as well as diacritics, an individual explanation of the specific handshapes is advised for each language. Due to formatting issues, areas below the waist are not well specified in this version, although they will be discussed in the article and are in fact included in the MSLIPA.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to constraints, this is only a bare version, and specific attributes (using superscripts) must be added manually, a link to the unicode list here
