SignWriting List
March 16, 2008

Hello Kathleen and Anny!
I am sooo happy you asked a question about writing signs on the SW  
List...go right ahead and ask questions.

I hope others will do the same...It is good for all signwriters,  
including me...;-)

And the video is excellent, Kathleen. Thank you for that.

As you already know, the dark-dot symbol means sequential-closing-of- 
the-middle-joints (fingers bend one at a time). The hollow dots mean  
"opening one at a time"... see attached diagram...

And it is true that the fingers do open one at a time, and then close  
one at a you chose the right symbols.

There are several other ways to write the same movement, so let me  
show some of those next message...continued next message...

Val ;-)
