Oil

To sign oil, hold your flat, open non-dominant hand in front of you, lying on its pinkie side and with palm facing in. Then take your open, dominant hand, and grasp the underside of the non-dominant hand with your middle finger and thumb. Next, drag your thumb and middle finger downward as they touch, a few inches below the non-dominant hand. It is as if you are mimicking the fat or oil dripping from a piece of roasted meat, pork, or chicken on a skewer.
