Hello Muriel -

There are three areas for facial expressions:

1. Facial Expressions Web Pages

2. SymbolBank Database Online

Search the database for Facial Expressions, which are Category 3 in the 
database...so search for Category 3.

3. MundbildSchrift

There has been a lot of work on facial expressions in Germany, by 
Stefan Woehrmann...He has used our symbols to develop a method for 
writing facial expressions for Deaf children, which he calls 
"MundbildSchrift" or "Mouth Pictures"...and it helps Deaf kids learn to 
form the words on their lips...

Good luck with your work!

Val ;-)
