Hello Tomas, Honza, Charles and everybody.

Im just here after 4 month sleeping. I founded very interest discussion about 
Czech sign SKOLA (school). I had same problem with making first sign CZECH 
(Val helped to create me it by video show of one deaf person). Some people 
began disagree with three times moving hand. I know that so much of people 
use twice.
I thought its not important, because Stokoe notation put only sign "repeat" 
and its end. I know not every people use same multiple hand movement (not 
important if it is native speaker or hearing people). There is no 
regulation..  Is possible put to sign that hand movement can be repeted 2 or 
3 times (in one sign) and not create two independent sign ? 

I know sign SKOLA (school) is used with twice hand movement because it have 
two syllables sko-la and now Im suprised that somebody use three times 

Honza: Why do you think that Vaclav Ptacek is no deaf ? He attended normal 
oral school, so he speak as hearing person. Maybe you dont know that his 
parents are deaf and he have deaf daughter :-).
