Hi Anne-Claude - 
and thank you very much for your message - it is always fun to discuss
SW-spellings issues - 

well in this case - it is difficult as always - do we need an extra - an
additional hand shape - thumb with pressure beneath the curved index ?? 

-- or would it be enough to accept a hand shape that comes close to this
with the thumb and index in contact? 

Did you see that the hand-shape offered on the website :

 ... look under ecstasy)

I put a sequence of the video in a photo - see attached png.

is not the one the signer really shows? 

Again I would prefer a hinge movement since the whole thumb seems to move
towards the open mouth 

I would vote for a wide open "A-mouth" - smile 

.. and since the thumb is brushing but not rubbing I would vote for the
brush - symbol ... 

I am looking forward to Valeries -- spelling - suggestions. 

Stefan ;-)

Betreff: [sw-l] how would you write this sign??

I have problems writing another sign... not sure about how to write  
the thumb movment in front of the mouth...

this sign is for ECSTASY (the drug) (see the video on http:// ... look under ecstasy)
