I've been thinking some more about how to indicate unspecified movements that stay in place (i.e., that do not travel). Maybe an action stroke and a place sign could be used to indicate one movement that stays in place, as in Ex. 1. How could that indication be modified to say any number of movements that stay in place? An indication for "any number" needs to be invented (see Ann Guest's Feb 10 comments in this thread). Maybe it could be derived from the sign for "number" shown in Ex. 2. The "any number" sign could be drawn as in Ex. 3 (i.e., with horizontal "any" signs). Thus "any number of unspecified movements that stay in place" could be indicated as in Ex. 4.
