Hi Valerie, 

this is wonderful. So interesting to find an answer to a spelling problem
that seems to be so obvious - well after you got the chance to study it.

Thank you soooo much. 

I will sat down and will create some TT-Font with that and will show them to
you later. 

For now - this helped a lot. 

By the way - do you have a scanner - why not simply write a document by hand
- scan it - and post it - Perhaps that would not cause so much energy ??? Or
do you insist to give away only 120% perfect teaching materials - smile --
as always

Stefan ;-)

Dear SW List, Stefan and Marisa -

Here are my attempts to show you possible ways of writing this  
movement...I am sure there are other choices as well...

The same symbols that we use to write larger movements of the arms  
and hands, are simply made smaller and placed inside or near the  
Facial Circle. It is important to make the symbols very tiny, so they  
are not confused with the larger arrows for arm and hand movement...

So Stefan, I hope you will re-post the message from googlemail that  
we did not see today...I could not see it either...I only know that  
it please post that again from your other email  
account...I look forward to reading that message...

and here are my attempts...see attached...

By the way, when the Tension Symbol is combined with a Touch Contact  
Star...that means "pressing" or "pushing" that is why you see a  
Tension plus Touch in one of the examples attached...because the idea  
is that it is pressing three times into the cheek...

There are other movement symbols that I use inside the face curved arrows for eyegaze that curves etc...

Have a great Sunday!

Val ;-)
