Hi everyone, signwriting list!
Hello Adam and Valerie!
This guideline of writing repeated motions in specific " Movement Clusters " that are established as part of the SignWriting system is in keeping with Madson and Raquel Barreto's information in the book “Escrita de Sinais sem Mistérios”.
With published research by teachers and researchers Deborah Campos Wanderley and Marianne Rossi Stumpf many of us SignWiriting users started writing using small lines for repeated motion. In fact, I am using this rule as a support for writing my book.
But with the guidance for using the “Movement Clusters" for repeated motion. I will review my productions and follow the rule of the “Movement Clusters" for repeated motion.
I will also share this guidance with other SignWriting users here in Brazil through social networks.
Many thanks Valerie for this important help in this matter, many thanks also to Adam for starting this subject with the question.

For me, I would use those for my personal note-taking ...But when we are publishing for others to read formal sign language literature, I believe in writing the repeated motions out in specific "movement clusters", which are established as a part of the SignWriting system... there are certain "movement symbol clusters" that are commonly used for plurals ... I want to write a textbook on Movement Symbols, and actually Adam has already created wonderful videos for the Contact Symbols and Finger Movements, which will be the first two chapters of the Movement Symbols textbook. But the "Movement Clusters" for repeated motion will be a chapter in the book. Here are some examples attached. The clusters give the visual feeling of producing the signs with repetitive motion ----------------On Aug 5, 2019, at 7:50 PM, Adam Frost <[log in to unmask]> wrote:So you would be suggesting to use the lines as a way of saying repetition? Interesting.I guess I could use that as a basis to write something like below to show the movement. If I were to remove the arrow, that would mean repetition without moving?

Greetings signwriting list!
Here in Brazil we are using some signwriting referring to the linguistic aspects of the plural marks in the Brazilian Sign Language.
Teachers and researchers Débora Campos Wanderley and Marianne Rossi Stumpf published a scientific article, with the theme: Plural Marking in the Signwriting System: A Morphological Approach. In this article they explain the use of the ending of symbols (I) or (II):
