Subject: Re: Lessons In Sign Language Transcription
here is my first gif.
The problem might be that I had to copy the video and the result is that I
have to guess pretty much what he is doing with his hands ...
Anyway - learning by doing.
First problem - when I tried to express that the one hand is over the other
hand i used the surface symbols - is that OK ?
I would like to add the second thick line for the hip - but then you
couldnīt see the shapeof the hands exactly?
2. I donīt know if he (what is his name - ??) touches his neck with is right
index-finger , I decided that he didnīt . (?)
3. I had to decide which handshape to choose - flat hand or five fingers
hand. I guess that the flathand in a curved movement forward down is ok.
You didnīt post the gif of Mark. Would it be a good idea to send all the
gifs directly to you? You would collect them and post all transcriptions
along with your comment in one attachment ? Having no idea what the others
of our group are going to see or to write I wasnīt influenced - and that
seems to be good in order to get in touch with my own problems and questions
That`s it for today
Have a great day. Iīm very happy that we finally started this teaching group
! Thank you very very much !
