Hello Kathleen and Everyone -
You are right. I looked at the sign above and it is two movements, not
one. And it would be written like our ASL sign for POSSIBLE...and I
guess the Flemish sign too! Your video clips are so helpful!

Here is another version of the American sign for POSSIBLE with the head
movement showing agreement...saying is POSSIBLE!
