the sign usually starts with palm facing the face... going down in  
front of the face (no touching).. and then the /angle hand/ goes   
away from the chin (without touching)... straight ahead with an  
abrupt movement...

  can you read this properly.... and is it necessary to insert the  
chin (would the neutral face symbol be sufficient ?)

thanks for your different spelling suggestions... I erased one in the  
french dictionnary.... the movment she's doing at the beginning of  
the video  is not the one usuanlly seen for this specific sign!... so  
I bet it's not significative.... so I eraased /attitude_2/ and  
replaced it with this one.
