Dear SW List, and Nikos!
Please see attached diagram...Top row, reading from left to
right....Nose, Contact-Nose, Wrinkled Nose, and Wiggling Nose...The
bottom row from left to right...Air out of mouth, Air into mouth,
What is Contact-Nose? It could be written as two separate symbols...the
Nose and a Touch Contact Star, but because contacting the nose happens
frequently in signed languages, we started to make that combination
into ONE symbol...
The nose is contacted in ASL in a variety of ways...the fingers can
touch the nose, the palm of the hand, even the arm can touch the nose
occasionally...so there are a variety of signs that use that symbol....
