Hello Valerie..

 I love this sign and explanation  for DAWN... this is the same  for British Sign Language
  Perhaps you could add it to the British Sign Dictionary.. 

this evening I was explaining to my class  all about  chatting with you on SKYPE.
 Our SW  Workshop  , The SW website and Lessons..  and my DVD and my  handouts

Some of the class  understood immediately  my explanation of some basic words /shapes. 
and so I was wondering How much would it  cost  for my dvd to be translated into a  SW Booklet ??  

when I find some funding places  that are open for us to apply to.. . I could ask for funding for this to be produced..

Kind regards.

Hi Madson and everyone -
You must forgive my poor reading of Portuguese - I really enjoy seeing SignWriting posted on FaceBook (see posting below) and I only wish I could participate better, but my poor Portuguese is a problem -  I thought I would share with you, how I would write the sign for DAWN, which you mention below - which I believe is your word MADRUGADA?… Follow the dots - this writing shows that the little finger opens first…if the thumb opened first then the dots would start at the thumb - you can place the dots exactly with the fingers that open - so if you only opened two fingers, then the exact two fingers could be marked with the dots symbols - that is why they are accurate, because you can shorten or lengthen the dot by dot symbols to show exactly which fingers open first, second and third...

O símbolo que mostrei na 'Postagem 1" de acordo com a regra indica que o movimento de abrir começa no dedo INDICADOR e depois os outros tbm abrem.
Mas na Libras alguns sinais começam a abrir pelo dedo MÍNIMO (ex: Explicar; Madrugada).
Para escrever o movimento começando do dedo mínimo, poderia se usar a seguinte convenção (regra): escrever o símbolo (o da Postagem 1) PERTO DO DEDO MÍNIMO, isto mostraria que o movimento começa por ele.

Veja os exemplos na imagem:
A) usando o símbolo (postagem 1)
B) usando a trilha...

A Valerie Sutton disse no fórum que as duas formas estão corretas e que é possível entende-las. Acredito que a forma indicada em 'A' é mais fácil de ser escrita e pode ser usada em vários sinais. Mas a forma 'B' parece apresentar limitações quanto a escrita do sinal 'Madrugada'...

Vocês concordam em escrevermos como no exemplo 'A'?

Madson e Raquel Barreto
