Symbolizing Tips

  • each symbol should represent one idea or concept
  • more abstract symbols can be eliminated (might, so, the)
  • rewrite and simplify your text to make the symbols more appropriate
  • attempt to make sure each sentence is only on one line (design your page to act as punctuation)
  • be sure to use the symbol that matches the meaning of the word (avoid homophones, i.e. bee for be)
  • be consistent in the symbols you use (and symbol set you use)
  • review the text by "reading" only the symbols to be sure the symbols say the same thing as the text when read along
  • remember that new and abstract symbols need to be taught
  • be very careful cutting and pasting text into symbolizing software, you will likely need to do a lot of editing
