Hi Valerie and Stefan,
Stefan - I use your "Mundbilder" (but only for part of words). We are not sure if it is necessary or not to write whole words, so we write just few letters of each word.
Thank you Val, yes I know there are many explanations, but it is not exact.
Best are pictures. I found some in Cross-linguistic Guide, but there are only some - especially there are only 3-4 eyebrow patters.
Hi Valerie and friends,
In addition to that we discussed again and again my “Mundbilder” system – smile
You find it in my “Handbuch zur GebärdenSchrift”
It is helpful to describe/write down that part of information coming from the lips of a signer if it is not meant as “mouth gesture” but associated with given words in the spoken language of that country. ...

Hello Val and all in the list from Brno,
this autumn I started to teach SignWriting at university, and I haven't found anywhere on the web, nor in Stefan's book photos of facial expressions.
Some expressions are not easy to imagine. There are some pictures in Cross-linguistic guide but mostly pictures of mouth pattern but not eyebrows.
Are there exact picture of meaning all symbols of eyebrows in SignWriting?
