The best person to answer this would be Professor Rocha in Brazil. I know longer have a contact. Perhaps Fernando Capovilla can inquire.

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.

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" ...
