Hi Charles, Valerie ,


just for fun and it is interesting to discuss this sign –


well I do not know what you want to do with your tongue –but if I assume to move it from the right punched out cheek to the opposite one several times – I  would prefer a different spelling.




I am interested in your opinion Valerie. Is it your understanding that both spelling describe the same performance? I would not think so.

Does the duplication arc work for a non-manual sign? 

This is Roubarse from the LIBRAS puddle. The tongue sweeps from one punched out cheek to the opposite one several times for this sign for "robbed"

Hello Charles and Everyone -


Yes. It does. It means you do the right side first in your example, because we are reading vertically top sign first...and then the left side happens second in your diagram - Attached is information about the dynamics symbol called "Un-Even Alternating Dynamics" ...
