Subject:  Rotation movement - "axial" movement

SignWriting List

Stefan and everyone - Rotation symbols are built on a central line
that acts as an "axis", and then the arrows revolve or rotate around
that axis...

Attached is a diagram showing that a single-lined axis shows the
forearm parallel with the floor...the arrows themselves are
double-stemmed other words...the axis (the forearm) is parallel
with the floor, but the movement itself paints a path that is
parallel with the wall....imagine if you put black paint on your
thumb or baby finger...what path would it draw in space, while the
forearm stays in one place and the arm rotates?
