Hi - thank you.
Yes, I considered that one. But I'd really like to be able to represent 
the sign more accurately, since the transcript is part of a linguistic 
And this devanagari "p" appears so much in my data.
Perhaps someone could tell me how I might produce the right shape, 
since it appears not to already be on the roster? Is there any program 
for generating handshapes?
Thanks again,
