Query on the above sign.  This is the first time I have put a location manikin
with a sign.  

1) Is this correct:

2) Would it be understood with just the shoulder line.

3) If so, what would be the SSS for the shoulder line.  The location of cupping the breast for this sign (which is one LIBRAS sign for mother, the GESTUNO sign for MOTHER, and several others is not easily understood without a body location, one could be grasping anything.  Any suggestions:

I am sorry about the link I sent before. Now that I tested it, it  
didn't seem to work...

1. So to view the ASL definitions, go to:

SignPuddle 1.5

2. Enter the ASL Dictionary and click on Search by Words.

3. Search for the number 1.

4. You will find two entries and both have definitions in ASL...

Thank you Adam for the definitions!

Val ;-)
