Hi Val,

Yes, it is very helpful (and thanks again for complimenting us on it), but it remains a pity we didn't get to the Sign Spelling rules sooner ...

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 ;-)
