Betreff: Re: [sw-l] Sign for Tokyo
nice to hear form you. So the signs for Tokyo and 'east' are two different
signs, then, not just a difference in the context and the mouth pattern? As
for spelling, I think two straight arrows upwards is right, if that is what
you feel you are doing. If you put in the downward arrow in between, this
movement gets the same 'value' as the upwards movements - while if you leave
it out, the downward is sort of understood to be neccessary for the second
upward to be done, but it has no 'value' of itself
