Hi Stefan and Charles -

Oh. I see. I would read your writing, Stefan, as doing the right side, then doing the left side then doing the right side then doing the left side.

I would read Charles's writing as "doing two movements of the tongue on the right side, and then doing two movements of the tongue on the left side...

I thought that was what Charles wanted - 

There really is no need for the Uneven Alternating Dynamics Symbol - Stefan is correct about that - I know I wouldn't use it - but on the other hand it is not wrong really if you do one side twice, and then the other side twice -

Val ;-)

Hi Charles, Valerie ,
just for fun and it is interesting to discuss this sign –
well I do not know what you want to do with your tongue –but if I assume to move it from the right punched out cheek to the opposite one several times – I  would prefer a different spelling.
I am interested in your opinion Valerie. Is it your understanding that both spelling describe the same performance? I would not think so.

Does the duplication arc work for a non-manual sign? 

This is Roubarse from the LIBRAS puddle. The tongue sweeps from one punched out cheek to the opposite one several times for this sign for "robbed"

Clear writing moves business forward.
Hello Charles and Everyone -
Yes. It does. It means you do the right side first in your example, because we are reading vertically top sign first...and then the left side happens second in your diagram - Attached is information about the dynamics symbol called "Un-Even Alternating Dynamics" ...
Read about it on this web page:
Movement Dynamics
