thank you Claudia -
I think I understand what you mean - so in the diagram you sent, the ones
marked in orange are the ones you added so that you have parallel
flexing/bending/sizing for all arrows, making the glyphs for different
planes more aligned with one another - thus perhaps making the glyphs more
accessible in the sense that the writer can anticipate similar patterns
for bending/flexing/sizing of arrows on different planes..and then the
same would apply for other glyphs.

i was thinking - would you have an italian version, my italian I think is
slightly better than my French.

also what I could do is ask you to clarify where i don't fully understand
would that be okay?

>> Great to hear about your practical lessons of SW at University.
>> Claudia, just to let you know I haven't read through your work yet - I

>> by any chance would you have an English copy of your thesis?
>> Can I just ask a quick question - when you say you re-organized the ISWA
>> symbols - did you keep the same amount, or did you reduce these for the
>> writing of your specific sign language?
>> Thank you and best wishes for your teaching!
