Release history


  • The theory has been updated to take full advantage of the inflectional suffixes based on grammar rules recently introduced. In particular:
    • The rules to indicate the endings of the words "e" and "i" have been modified to avoid conflicts caused by the previous diphthong-based system (for a full description refer to the Michela theory manual on GitHub).
    • The numeric dictionary' strokes have been changed (from IU to Uu) in order to avoid a series of possible conflicts.
    • The syllabic finger-spelling system has been modified: it now uses the combination RX and RXI for capital letters.
  • Numerous definitions relating to prefixes / suffixes and formatting commands have been amended.
