Hello Everyone, Stefan and Ingvild!
Stefan's site is sooo huge....and wonderful! I tried to find the exact
page that you were referring to, Ingvild...

I went to...

I know there is a section on Mundbildschrift on Stefan's web
site...Meanwhile, while looking, I found this wonderful new document on
Stefan's site...notice the multiple facial expressions...I believe
Stefan is writing how the mouth looks when mouthing the words...see
attached is exciting, Stefan!
