SignWriting List
May 25, 2010

Hello Ingvild and Dali and everyone -

Hi Ingvild ;-)))

Thank you, for teaching on the list...this is so helpful...and excellent information to share - and yes, it is good to go over these symbols...it is good when List members ask questions because it gives us a chance to discuss them...

Writing the ending position, as Ingvild pointed out, is an important part of writing Finger Movement...

Single finger movements can also be written without these symbols, by writing the beginning and ending of the movement with two handshapes, but the Finger Movement Symbols are really helpful when there are multiple openings and closings, and are used for single finger movements too, to save time and space...

I hope Dali, this is helping? You can post some of your Tunisian signs to the List to share with us to get feedback too - or tell us where to look in the Tunisian SignPuddle dictionary - if we can read your signs, then you know you have written them well...

Thanks so much for this discussion -

Val ;-)

Also, it is common to place this arrowhead-symbol close to the fingers that moves, and to write the final shape of the hand - if the hinge is closing, write the hand with the finger/s closed, if the hinge is opening, write the hand with the finger/s open. Same goes for the dot-symbols of other finger joints - write the dot close to the finger moving, and finger in end position,
