[sw-l] Is this Spelling Correct?

Hi All!

I've added the sign "fish_2" meaning "fish as food" to the BSL dictionary:


I'm wondering, is this spelling OK?

The thumb is touching the chin but there's no way to actually make it look
like it's touching the chin. I've simply used the "chin" symbol, and put a
contact symbol next to the thumb.

The funny thing is that I always wrote this with the hand flipped, ie the
thumb actually looking like it was touching the chin, when using
handwriting. It's only when entering it via software that I noticed that the
right hand can't have the thumb there and had to think of another (though
rather odd) way of doing it!

Is there a way of spelling it (not in receptive mode!) so that it looks like
the thumb is touching the chin?

If only we had 3D paper!  :)
