Hi Stefan.

 That   SW is    fine 
 You may have found different ways of   doing "9"

 as there are different signs  for 9 depending on the area..

Older people with artritus prefer  to tuck the Thumb in
and have the 4 Fingers  straight..
 We had a  member who didnt have a thumb  so this  was their way for 9.

The easiest (9)  for children is Just  holding up their hands  and leaving the Right Thumb tucked in..

 Hope this helps..

Hi Valerie, Adam, Maureen  and friends,

 

for some hours I am busy to look at BSL signs...

 

There are various online-video – tutorials that show a variety of how to sign the numbers ...;-))

 

Just a question ... do we have in the actual symbol set the hand shape some of the signers prefer for signing “nine”

 

Flat-hand ... or  five-hand  but pinkey bent toward palm ( personally I have problems to perform this hand shape without to much effort)

What do you think about my attempt to construct this hand shape?

All best

 

Stefan
