It strikes me that all three would be signed differently. Stefan's
clearly indicates the contact at the beginning and end of the sign. Neither
of Valerie's indicates that, per se, or is it to be understood in some way?
Of course Valerie's second one doesn't move down, does it? They just flip
over, yes? no? Or do the hands trace a small curve in space? This
discussion of nitty-gritty is helpful to me to learn the details of the
various movement symbols.
