Hi Val and all, 

looking at the videos I see mouthmovements and fingermovements - 

attached you find my suggestion how to transcribe the two signs ... 

What do you think? 

Stefan ;-))

LESSONS in Finger Movements
The signs for Mama and Papa in Flemish Sign Language are important in 
this Lesson...because Mama Bear and Papa Bear are important to 
Goldilocks in Flanders!!

The two signs use Finger Movements, as you can see, if you visit the 
beautiful Flemish Online Dictionary, which has such good video...The 
videos will help write these two signs now...So take a look on these 
web pages. Next message I will write the sign for Papa for you...

Flemish sign for Papa

Flemish sign for Mama

Val ;-)

PS. The Flemish Sign Language dictionary is really lovely. Is there a 
way that we could arrange permission to correct some of the 
SignWriting? I know that probably will require the programmers..but if 
there is anything we can do here to help, please tell me...
