Everyone, and Stuart -
There is a way to search for all signs that use a specific palm
orientation, in SignBank, so actually you can search now, for signs
that use a specific palm facing...or symbols that do too...I believe
that kind of research could be greatly enhanced if researchers use the
more detailed version of SignBank and SymbolBank...which I will be
explaining in my next message...perhaps tomorrow morning...

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Val ;-)
