Signing Notes:

Note: Suppose your partner asks you how much your watch costs and you don't know because it was a gift, you might answer, "DON'T KNOW, DAD he-GIVE-me."

Note: You can use the sign "measure" can be modified to mean "size" or "measurement."  To do this the sign starts with the thumbs separated by about an inch from each other then moves together so that the thumbs touch, then repeats once.
.
The sign MEASURE+AGENT-(engineer) starts with the thumbs touching and twists (pivoting at the thumb) so that the pinkies move up and down in an alternating fashion.

To sign "IT" as in "IT WALL COLOR," just point at any nearby wall.  Using "IT" in this manner is the equivalent of saying the English word "the."

The concept of WEEKLY or every-WEEK is expressed by repeating the sign "WEEK."
