Hello Kimberley and Everyone!
OK. Attached are the Tongues and Teeth symbols in the IMWA. The  
second section for Teeth, the first row under column 2 and 3 show  
Tongue Resting on Top of Lower Teeth, and Tongue Resting Under Upper  

But I am not so sure the Teeth are so important. I might have chosen  
one of the Tongues to the left...

Do you have questions on what all these mean?  Val ;-)
