Thank you, Stefan, for this comment. Different viewpoints within one 
sign do not bother me personally, but if it bothers your Deaf students, 
then we should listen to them.

Let's have some fun! Here are 4 SignSpellings. 4 different ways to 
write the SAME sign for Northern Ireland...Yes...I added 3 more to the 
Northern Ireland SignPuddle.... So we actually have 7 spellings for the 
same sign!

Look at Number 4. The right hands are seen from the Front View, looking 
at the sides of the right hand. The left hands are written from the Top 
View, looking down on them parallel to the floor...The Top View is 
mixed with the Front View in one sign...That is what Stefan 
means...Does that bother you?

And look at Numbers 5, 6 and 7...Those spellings do not mix viewpoints. 
Can you read them? There is something new in one of them...Ask
