SignWriting List
November 14, 2011

Well, the way you wrote it, there is a tiny bit of traveling happening because you wrote traveling arrows…If you want it to be completely in place with zero travel to the right and left, then you would use a Rotation Symbol without an arrow, that means staying in one place while you rotate…that is why we developed the Rotation Symbols to begin with…because we did not always want to travel, and if we stayed in one place, we needed to know which handshape happened first and which one second, without using a traveling arrow - so that is why the Rotation Symbols were developed - Here is an example of staying in one place with no travel side:

> Thanks - I did look for the travel-with-rotation symbol , but writing both posistions would be enough, it seems. Sorry I did send two signs - the questen was about the one on the right. The first one means 'equal', the second one 'equation'. The hands flip/ rotate with the little finger side as axis - no separate travel, just the one that results from this 180 degree rotation. Agree this is enough - just had to make sure - this is part of a paper I just wrote for a terminology journal ...
