Hello Edi and everyone -
Thanks for your question and for writing Slovenian signs!

Regarding your question on the sign for “every night” …. I hope others will write this too, because everyone has a different style of writing and also my style of writing has changed over the years too - so other people’s input is really important and always welcome - 

Edi - Since this is not a complete circle, I would not write this sign with a complete circle symbol. The Movement Arrow showing the curved movement forward, or the Rotation Movement showing an arc forward, would be enough, combined with the positions before and possibly after (but not mandatory), to show the half circle…

Here are my two attempts - You can find them in the Slovenian SignPuddle Dictionary, under vso noč:,2279,2281&sTrm=vso&type=any&sTxt=&sSrc=&

Is existent sign for Slovenian words  vso noč (English – every night) written correctly?


Description for the upper sign: Left hand is horizontal, right hand is vertical. At the beginning of movement right hand is behind the left hand (betweeen left hand and the body). Right hand moves a bit up, then moves and bends around the left hand and finally moves downward. Right hand ends his movement  under the palm of the left hand and ends in vertical position with finger turned toward the signer and with palm upwards. It means that right hand rotates around the left hand but circle that made right hand isn´t full circle but 3/4 of circle. How can I write such sign or such movement?
