Here is our ASL sign for cry, Katrien. Notice how much detail we put 
into the writing...including contact under the eye...When I look at 
your SignSpelling on your link above, I noticed you did not tell the 
reader that the finger is contacting under the eye...your dictionary is 
sooo helpful on the web because with the video we can really see what 
you wanted to write...Congrats on your wonderful Flemish dictionary 
online...Val ;-)
