This article deals with formal representation of sign language lexicons. Present models are based on systematic parameter specification, which we think lacks flexibility. We suggest an adaptable model based on a sequential and geometric approach. Then we discuss a graphical representation for it that allows for a clearer view of the descriptions’ structures and dependencies. We give hints on the benefits we see in the model onto two different domains: sign language synthesis and data base driven studies of sign languages
