Important Notes

  • The symbols are copies from The Blissymbol Picture Book as they are well drawn with the dotted lines. However, in volume 1 of the Blissymbol Picture Book there is a section entitled "Make Haste Charles" (pages 13 and 14). He states that his helpers are finding errors that require correction. Charles replies that the corrections would take much time. Let them stay and let's get on with the work. Some symbols, like drink and needy and the helper, are errors that were not corrected.
  • I have to find a way to categorize the parts of speech, like articles and prepositions. Charles does not address this issue in my notes. Originally I placed them all under the thing category, but that did not seem correct. At the moment I am putting them under a category entitled parts of speech.
