PS:
Please notice that
"DEIT" stands for "Dicionario Enciclopedico Ilustrado Trilingue".
It is not "DIET" but, rather, "DEIT".
It could not be "DIET" because it is a rather bulky dictionary, not a slim
one.... (smile)
(even though I myself could use a DIET... - another smile)

>> Hello Eda, Yuri, Fernando and everyone -
>>
>> Thank you for writing, and thank you, Yuri, for your explanation in
>> Portuguese - I am looking forward to studying your messages too - I do
>> appreciate the effort you made. Thank you!
>>
>> And I am so looking forward to telling the world about Fernando
>> Capovilla's new dictionary which will be published soon. I feel so honored
>> that Fernando and his team have included SignWriting and worked so hard on
>> the thousands of entries - A huge job - For those who do not know about the
>> dictionaries:
>>
>> Novo Diet-LIBRAS Dictionary
>> http://www.signwriting.org/brazil/NovoDeitLibras.html
>>
>> So Eda, Yuri, Fernando, and everyone - Your efforts to write LIBRAS are
>> admirable - Fernando and I have already discussed the issues of
>> SignSpellings - There were so many different Deaf writers of the
>> dictionaries which Fernando has produced, and we all know that some of them
>> may not have had the time for proper instruction in SignWriting…and we have
>> discussed trying to correct or re-write some of the SignSpellings in the
>> dictionaries, and I actually did a little work on that with Fernando last
>> year, but there are so many signs that I felt overwhelmed, So it is no
>> one's fault, but there are some SignSpellings that are not the way I write,
>> in the dictionaries…But I LOVE the dictionaries…no matter what...I am very
>> happy and proud of the publications because we all know that writing has to
>> start somewhere…without dictionaries there would be no writing at all…and
>> so that is why I am explaining this to you all now, so that you can be
>> informed and share the information with your co-workers and writers - Of
>> course we can understand each other's writings, but it is good to know why
>> we write as we do….
>>
>> I believe that most writers do not know this about the Movement Arrows -
>> and if they understand the reason behind the Black, White and Grey
>> (General) Arrowheads, I think they will see there is a real use for the
>> original way the system was designed -
>>
>> Here is the explanation:
>>
>> The black arrow paints the right movement path. The white arrow paints
>> the left movement path. When the right and left hands move far apart from
>> each other, they paint two separate paths - one black and one white. That
>> way, we can see the difference between movement with the right hand and
>> movement with the left hand - This is important for linguistic reasons and
>> for writing complex movement sequences when writing storytelling…Here are
>> easy examples:
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> BUT, imagine that your two hands move, and the black movement path writes
>> on top of the white movement path…That is a grey or General Movement Arrow
>> - as you can see here, in the sign for FOLLOW in ASL, the right hand is
>> behind the left hand and follows the left hand…so the two movement paths
>> blend and become one path…they are not contacting each other in this case,
>> but it is a General Arrowhead because the paths blend...
>>
>>
>>
>> So now, let us take your examples. In the signs attached below, these
>> signs show that the two hands are far apart from each other and move with
>> separate paths. These signs are written correctly in this example, because
>> they show the black and white paths a good space from each other, just like
>> the starting position of the hands:
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> But below, these signs are read differently. They mean something else.
>> They show me that the hands start far apart from each other, but the
>> Movement Path is blended together into one, which means that the black
>> paint and the white paint are writing on top of each other…so that must
>> mean that the two hands moved into the center to be closer to each other
>> and then moved down either on top of each other, or maybe contacting each
>> other, to create a single grey movement path going down - it is a different
>> movement for me -
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> Of course I can guess what you meant, because I know there are
>> misunderstandings in the teachings, but I want you to know, Eda, how the
>> system was designed. For simple signs like these I can imagine you wonder
>> why it is necessary to show paths so exactly? That is because when we start
>> to write complex storytelling, there are times when the Black, White and
>> Grey (General) arrowheads are the only information we have for complex
>> sequences - sometimes the right hand can be over on the left side of the
>> body, or behind the body, in mime like sequences and the three movement
>> paths are needed to be able to read the movement correctly…
>>
>> Thank you for asking questions and no worries - If you can start writing
>> the way the system is designed, it will help when writing storytelling in
>> LIBRAS later. Have you done that kind of writing? Have you written books,
>> or long stories?
