Hi Madson, 


looking at your signs I had to smile. Sometimes you write a sign with this
very fast rotation movement – the man trying to open a door with your key
should get a problem – smile 

Perhaps you want to indicate a rotation movement back forth back at normal
speed – not as if shaking your hands dry ... ?

Betreff: Re: Movement of the wrist/ Rotation Symbols


Hello Ingvild, Valerie and everyone,


Valerie, we know the "SignSpelling Rule" and we have reflected much about


We agree with Ingvild to use the symbols for "wrist movements" near the
wrist to facilitate their assimilation. We believe the line pulse demarcate
the location of this symbol, so we wrote the signs that way.


As for the symbols "Rotation Symbols," we saw the "SignSpelling Rule" for
them too. Before seeing these rules (last year), we realized that positions
them in place of the arm (hand below) facilitates the reading of the sign.
Let me explain:


We believe that several of these symbols should be placed under the hand,
because the lines (single and double) represent the arm. In some cases,
however, "Rotation symbols" should be written above or below the hand for
movement is forward or backward.
