Hi Cherie, Valerie and listmembers ... 


I love to read your ASL – and I agree with Val’s comment – 


In addition to that  - in the end I would write another punctuation mark –
smile – 


I can perform your spelling without any problems except for the sign when
the hits my leg and  makes me fall – 


compare this sign with the following one – the right hand still at the same
position/location ?? 


Stefan ;-)

This is almost all classifiers... Can you read it? Did I make any spelling
mistakes this time? ::grin:: It would translate roughly as "I hate it when
the cat twines between my legs and makes me trip."


Hello Cherie and Everyone!

What a fabulous SignSentence...THANK YOU for taking the time to write
sentences and to post them to the SignWriting List! This is really exciting


Any spelling mistakes are very minor. I hope you don't mind that I discuss
the writing of the signs...It is an excellent exercise for all of us, to
study writing sentences...and everyone makes mistakes ...I know I do...Your
sentences are valuable for research to learn where things are hard and where
they are easy -


I noticed three small things...


First...The eyegaze. It is written looking back-diagonal right now, but I
wonder if you want it to look down-diagonal? If so, then the eyegaze should
be double-stemmed arrows...The single-stemmed arrows, as you know, show
eyegaze forward or side or back...movement parallel to the floor...


Second, the sign for falling down...does the left hand really end with the
fingers pointing toward the chest? If so that is perfect!


Third...I wonder, in the sign for falling down, if you want the left hand's
fingers in-between the right hand's fingers? if so, then that would be a
Brush-Between symbol, which you can find next to the Brush symbol...


Any weight shifting in this sentence? There is none written, so I assume
not...I wonder if there isn't a brief pause between the second and third
sign...You say: Me standing here...pause? that would be the comma
punctuation mark...


I think this is super! Can others on the List read this sentence? Val ;-)
