THIS works much better.  It is not the ARM that is locked in place, it is the WRIST that is locked or not locked in place.  Some people's arms do rotate, but everyone agrees that the wrist moves.  

That definition works.

Thanks for being persistent.

I love this new diagram, Adam! Thank you. And your definition is  
exactly the way the symbols were designed. This is the SignWriting  
definition of what a Rotation is, and what a Wrist Flex is....So this  
is a good diagram to place in the instruction for these symbols.

Thank you!

I have added the title for each kind of motion to the top of the  
paragraph in red... (illustrations still by Steve Parkhurst ;-)

And I realize that others might use these words differently, but what  
is important is to understand what the SignWriting terminology  
means...Here it is:
