That is a good idea, Stefan - Yes, the Fast Symbol would be a good symbol to add to show quick small movement

Hi Valerie ,
Thank you very much for this lesson ;-))
In order to focus on speed you may want to add a “speed” symbol ,,, ?
All best

Hello Charles and Cherie…
First, you need the symbol-combination that means PRESS. That is a combination of the Tension Symbol with the Touch Contact Star. Whenever those two symbols are written together it means PRESS, and when one reads the sign, one knows that the pressure is going to remain, and any movement is coming from the stationary arm…here is the way I would write the sign for MEDICINE in ASL, for example, which has the middle finger pressing on the other hand, while the small arrows are "small finger arrows". The movement is really from the pressing finger…staying stationary but jiggling from side to side…
You could apply that kind of writing to your sign, Charles…I would I believe if I have understood the sign correctly…
So the combination of contact, tension and tiny finger arrows creates the "shaking" feeling that can be applied to earthquake and other signs too...
