ASL classifiers or "depictive verbs" are special signs that can be used to show size, shape, location,
orientation, direction, and movement path. See: "Classifiers"
VACATION: The sign “VACATION” can be used
to mean: Holiday, “OFF” (off work), break (take a break).
If you initialize the sign VACATION with an “R” or do it with just the
index and thumb, it can mean “retired.”
