  Betreff: Re: diagonal planes

  Hi Valerie,

  Am I correct in writing a line down the center of the palm (fingertip to
wrist) to show diagonal orientation (like for boat).  I'm really not sure
how to show it otherwise. One's palm is face up sticking away from the body
but at a diagonal slant, so you need both a gap for the fingers and a line
down the center to show diagonal orientation.  Is this correct?

    After testing these symbols, there is no question that a dot on the
    Horizon Line is required, when the fingertips of the hand point towards
    the reader (towards the chest of the signer in EXPRESSIVE)... otherwise
    there can be the plain horizontal line always means
    "towards the back wall of the room"....(forward in EXPRESSIVE)...
