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 ;-)

Clear writing moves business forward.

Subject: One sign difficult writing

Hello SW list!
I was trying to write down one sign which means waterfalls!
I was thinking of many ways to write it down, it is so complicated that I do not know how to write it!
Reading my signwriting and the picture, you  might guess the meaning, any suggstions please??!!!
if it is still not clear, here is the video on youtube, you find the sign on minute 2:50

Blessings!

Dali :D
