Hello Everyone, 
I have a new question โ€“ this time about rotation symbols.  In the lessons in signwriting book (maybe I should say bible ๐Ÿ˜Š)  forearm rotation is discussed starting on page 142.  I am just having a hard time understanding how the symbols match with the actions.
The problem is that I donโ€™t understand what the arrows mean in the rotation symbols.  I see that for example if the forearm points up, that is the wall plane and it is a double line.  But if the arrow shows a movement to the right, what does that mean?  Because technically the arm stays in one place and doesnโ€™t move?
This is the set of signs that I am trying to understand:  (S2df)
If I am describing these symbols can I say something like the following:  (in all these symbols I understand we are talking about the right arm and it is in an upright position, pointing to the ceiling)
In the first symbol, the thumb moves from right to left and the palm first faces the signer and then faces the viewer
In the second symbol, the thumb moves left and down???
In the third symbol, the thumb moves in a curve from left to right so that the hand is first palm out to viewer and then palm in to signer?
The fourth symbol looks almot like the third
In the fifth symbol, the thumb moves left to right and the palm of the hand is first facing the viewer and ends facing the signer?
I am really confusedโ€ฆ..
