Subject: Re: e. lessons
Hi Tini and listmembers,
I agree ! Usually I would assume a contact between thumb and index looking
at the "flat-O" - but in this case - and this is what I mean with "writing
for the informed reader" we should notice that there is a movement
description - a finger is moving forward with a brush - staying in contact
all the time - so for me it is the thumb that is brushing for some distance
and that should not be possible if it starts with the index -
Well I bet that - You Valerie - are able to write this sign sooooooo
detailed that yon can see from the moon that it starts with a
babyfinger-thumb contact and ends with a index-thumb contact.
If time does alow that - please ... ;-)
In the meantime ;-) But it is a fact that all of us who discussed this
sign as a special one - we will be able to understand to read it - just as
mud - ha . muddy boots, muddy -
Hi Tini can you offer some "muddy sentences - simply using this sign " ??
And You are right that the reader who is not involved in this discussion
would not be able to read it so detailed.
This reader will not find to sleep - but there is the List and he an she can
post his/her problem .. ha !
