…this sign in LIBRAS from Brazil…
is based on this illustration on page 359 of Novo Diet-Libras…(WONDERFUL BOOK! ;-)
Look at the second section of this sign. It should be written differently than the writing above.
Here are three possible ways to write the second section of the sign, based on SignSpelling Guidelines:
Always write the Position of Contact, which is at the end of this movement. You can write the sign starting with the C hand, or starting with an open-5 hand, or don't bother writing the first position, but just show there is a single closing of the fingers into the Fist, which is the Position of Contact. This movement is common to many sign languages. In ASL, it means to condense, abbreviate or summarize.
SignSpelling Guideline 1:
Always write the Position of Contact.
SignSpelling Guideline 4:
Finger Movement Symbols are usually written on the
finishing handshape that is the result of the end of the finger
SignSpelling Guideline 5:
Surface Symbols are not needed.
