Hello Rafaela, Stefan, Adam and Charles -

Thank you for this discussion, and thanks to Stefan and Adam for posting your writing.

I agree with Rafaela. The symbol seems well formed. Start with the flat mouth and add a trill symbol, but I can't find it in the obvious places on SignPuddle.

What a very interesting question. I am not sure if I am seeing the same thing that you are asking, but ASL has some things that are very similar. So I will write how I would write those things.

1 - This is the mouth movement that ASL has with starting a motorcycle.

2 - ASL has a mouth movement that is often written in English as "PAH", so I just added down arrows to show that it repeats more that once.

I hope that this helps.
