See how the players on each team (represented by the fingers) line up and crash into one another?
Be careful that your hands are up and down, because when the fingertips face forward, the sign becomes ROAD.
Can you see how the hands show the people sitting on a slope?
This sign can also be initialized with a “T” for TEAM, an “F” for FAMILY, or a “G” for GROUP.
Notice how the hands show the four walls of a room. Office is the same way but with the “O” handshape.
Without the agent marker, this sign is counsel, or advice.
Notice how the action is that of flipping food over in a pan.
This movement represents holding and controlling the reins of a horse.
Add the agent marker and this sign becomes WAITER.
The sign for student is LEARN + the agent marker, which represents a person. Can you see how the sign brings the information off the page and into the head?
Be careful not to sign FIELD TRIP, as this is not the correct concept… unless you are taking a trip to an actual field.
To sign HOTEL simply change the handshape to an “H”.
