Hi Charles,

 

well the facial expressions for the mouth is an important part of the information to understand the sign. Just take a video of someone saying “SAMBA”

 

You turn down the speakers and only watch his mouth... this is written and can be read without any guessing!

 

I want my deaf students to improve their spoken language skills. So they have to find a way to translate what is expressed but cannot be heard.

 

And of course Cherie ... it is the way you explain it. – smile

 

Stefan

Makes sense, I don't really understand the Munder (mouth) shapes though they are consistent.

no, the left hand is the white open hand, palm up, with thumb extended to the left,  the right hand is the black -and- half black hand "playing" on the white hand "drum"...

I am looking at the left hand (alone below) and the thumb is on a side that I can't wrap my head around. 

 

The left thumb is in the middle with the hand upward and out. That's not possible if this is meant to be expressive.

No, I think I didn't explain very well =p

The handshape and orientation of the left hand is this[log in to unmask]" alt="Imagem inline 1"> , as if it were a pandeiro, not holding one pandeiro.

Hi Gustavo,

looking at you-tube videos ... I tried to write it this way –

 

left hand holding the pandeiro – right hand makes the thumb drumming ;-)

 

What do you think?

I think that sign is a "iconic imitation" of the playng of 'pandeiro' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pandeiro_in_hands.jpg) - that is: the location is the 'passive' hand (an iconic pandeiro), and the active makes the "druming" (shaking the hand from the wrist). 

Sorry but I cannot insert this sign in the SignPuddle...
