Ha Lucy - this is fun -

compared to a sign written In SW it seems to be pretty dificult to describe
a sign in words - we always forget about some parameters and two weeks later
we can thro our notes about new signs into the bin -

do you mean rubbing or brushing - i.e. does the right B - hand - palm
touching the chin - right??) does it stay in contact like right - left-
right - left - how often ??? )

Or is there more kiond of a doubbled brushing to the right but the hand
looses contact with the skin of the chin  ?

Look at my first suggestion - but without a movie or lifelike drawing - it
is only a guess ;-))

Are there any lifelike drawings in the internet posted about Czech - signs??

Stefan ;-))

Let me help :-)
The sign is like this: the "B"-shaped hand rubs the chin in one direction
(right hand - right direction); the movement is rapid, short and repeated.
