Clear to me, but then I've been around a long time.  The only difference in yours Nana, was where the movement got put to keep it compact.

Hi Valerie and Nana, 


I went to the PH Signpuddle – 


one sign – source Valerie – caught my attention. It is June ( fingerspelling) 


>From my point of view – this rotation of the baby finger is somehow difficult to understand. Well I do not know the manual Alphabet of the Phillipines – but would be interesting to have a safe basis to start from. 


Attached you find my two  spellings – ( at least my guess what the movement may look like?) 




So perhaps Nana you can start to offer photos or gifs of what the hand shapes of the Phillipine manual alphabet look like.


What about the numbers from 1 to 10 – maybe 15 or 10, 20, 30  


After we agree upon the idea what kind of hand shape (lifelike representation ) you want to express with a SW symbol it is easier to start with spelling questions. – 


All the best for your work!


Stefan ;-)

For now until I get to work on it J - you can go to the Filipino SignPuddle. There are six signs that Val worked on with me: start, Nana, June, Genesis, earth and Philippines. My homework was to re-do school, which I posted today. ...



The sign for school looks good, Nana!! Val ;-)
