Hello Everyone, and Philippe!
Thanks for this question. I have now added four possible spellings  
for the sign for HOSPITAL in the ASL SignPuddle. See attached  
diagram...The two arrows combined is an actual symbol in its own  
right...the combination itself became a symbol because it is used so  
much in signed languages...This combines with the Brush Symbol on the  
arm...So you do not have to write a separate arrow down, and then  
another separate arrow across...In the next message I will show where  
that cross-movement symbol is Val :-)
