Hello Marisa, and welcome to the SW List.
And many thanks for this question from you and Stefan...Good question!

First, the symbols you are asking about were developed at the time  
that Ingvild Roald, from Norway, requested these symbols for the  
tongue tightly pressed between the lips...I will answer your question  
next message about the specific symbols you mention, but here are the  
related symbols that are needed in Norwegian Sign Language. They are  
under the tongue section where they should be!
