Signing Notes:
CHOOSE:  There are several versions of the sign CHOOSE.  All of them are based on the idea of using your index finger and thumb to take hold of your "choice" and pull it up/and or toward yourself.  You may see the sign "PICK-UP" (which is related to the sign CHOOSE) done with the middle finger and the thumb (a palm-down open-8 that changes into a palm-down-8-handshape).

MOVE: The sign for MOVE is highly adaptable.  You can adjust the movement of the MOVE sign to show "how" something is moving.  When signing "move your ears" you would do the sign near your ears and use a very small movement.  Or you could ditch the MOVE sign altogether and use "bent" hands that bend and unbend slightly to show the movement of the ears (as a classifier or depictive verb).

 

CUT:  There are many ways to sign the concept of "CUT." The right sign depends on what is being cut, what you are cutting it with, where you are cutting at, and in what manner you are cutting. If you are cutting with scissors, then use a "V" handshape. If you are cutting with a knife, then use an index finger.  If you are cutting with a scalpel then use the thumbnail of an "A" handshape.

 

CLEAN-up: The sign for "CLEAN-up" does the "CLEAN" sign quickly twice. It represents brushing off a table or other surface. The CLEAN sign is also the same sign as NICE"

WINTER:  The sign for WINTER can be done without initialization if you have enough context.  If your sentence lacks context then use the "W" handshape.

 

HEAD-COLD: Is one sign not two.  It looks (somewhat) as if you are wiping your nose (twice) with a tissue.

QM-wig: Is a way of writing wiggle your index finger between being a straight index finger and being an "X" handshape in order to represent a "question mark."
