    How would you sign “ow” or “ouch” as in when you’re hurt?

    ADMIN – Hi Sara,

    Please refer to the sign for hurt available in our dictionary.

    Can you explain how to sign “oatmeal”? Thank you so much for your website!!

    ADMIN – Hi Melanie,

    For oatmeal we do a combo sign. The sign for hot and the sign for cereal.

    How do you say “obey”?

    ADMIN – Hi Sara,

    Obey is signed by pointing the index of your dominant hand against your temple and pulling it forward to form a closed fist with thumb up with both hands on the opposite side of your body.

    My 18 month old grandson has learned some sign language that our family uses with him (“all done”, “more”, etc.). Lately he has made a sign that uses one hand palm up while the other hand’s index finger taps the opposite palm. Can you tell me what he is signing?

    ADMIN – Hi Nyla,

    It sounds a little like more. It is equally possible he just made it up. Much like children first learning to speak say gibberish words, sometimes young signers will make up their own sign … sometimes they have a meaning to them, other times it is just a bit of fun.
