SignWriting List
February 15, 2000

Hello everyone -
Thanks for the attachment, Stefan, and for your wonderful message
about your Deaf students typing signs with SignWriter - that is
wonderful news indeed!

The sign you wrote below is not possible, actually! The
double-stemmed axis means that the arm that is rotating is up and
down, parallel with the wall. The double stemmed line means the arm
is in line with that direction - with the hand pointing
up.....Imagine the double line painted on your arm, if your hand were
pointing to the ceiling.

But the hand appears, in your diagram, to be parallel with the floor.
So that would have to be a single-stemmed axis, with the rotations
moving forward and back with single stemmed arrows.

I believe the Parkhursts have some excellent diagrams for those
movements - take a look in their books ...
