The diacritics I used are not in the Lessons in
SignWriting manual. They are in Dance Writing and
they show up every once in a while in signs where 3-D
is really required, such as "hands moving under each
other" (like 'beneath') or "hands moving behind" (like
'sunrise'). They are under "contact stars" in the
SignPuddle. I'm following my instinct from more than
10 years ago.
