SignWriting List
January 2, 2007

I tried to post this message last night, but for some reason the List  
software refused to post the message! Here it is again....


Thank you, Anny, for the question, and Stefan for your answer. Thanks  
for grabbing the photos of the signer...

To explain how I would write that sign...

It is a description of the Middle Joint and Knuckle Joint symbols:

The key to these symbols has to do with the Middle Joint. If there is  
movement in the Middle Joint, then it is written with a dot. But if  
the Middle Joint locks...if the Middle Joint does not change...if the  
middle joint is the finger is like a stiff board, moving  
only from the Knuckle joint...then it uses the little  
arrows...continued next message...
