Hello SignWriting List!
I received this question, and below is my answer - Feel free to ask questions any time ;-)

I am trying to find what symbol I would use for the "MM" Mouth morpheme. I can't seem to find a document with the facial expression symbols and a description of what they mean. Do you have one?


Hello -
Great to hear from you. Thank you for this question.

Hope this helps ;-)

Val ;-)
