You might want to see if the hook and the extended finger are a minimal pair in 
other signs and choose which one you actually do.

Take a look at "father" (papai) in Libras, this is a similar sign.

Compare this to "green" (verde) which uses the closed hook.

Hi Suzanne, 
 
looking at this performance I probably would vote for another hand shape

Betreff: touching nose
 
Hi everyone,
 
I have a question. How would I show that a hand is
touching the nose twice?
 
If you look for the word 'sister' in the BSL dictionary
Puddle you can see my attempt so far.
 
Is that right?
 
Thanks a lot!
 
I'm off to watch the World Cup final now :)
 
Suzanne
