SignWriting List
December 29, 2013

Hello Charles, Stefan and Dali -
Thank you for these discussions. Although I have not seen the video, if it were my choice, I would not write the down-diagonal hand position with a diagonal line across the hand to show the diagonal position dipping partially down. I would assume the sign will be read without the added detail of the down-diagonal hand position, and it is too much detail to write down-diagonal hand positions for everyday use… the simpler the better…

And as you can see, I chose to write the left hand from the Front View and not the Top View…I think it is easier to read that way as well - 

But there are always other ways to write the same sign, so if you have other ways to write it, feel free to post it -

I need to look at the video again - for some reason, on the video, I saw one sign after the other, but not the one we are trying to write - I suspect that must have been a computer glitch here, since you all saw the video easily -

For example, Stefan mentions that it starts out as a Flat Hand and not a Spread Five Hand - so that I did not realize -

So Dali, with our three-way conversation here, I think you can read the different ideas from the three of us, and you can choose to write it as you wish -

Thank you for sharing with us!

Val ;-)
