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
