away

There really isn't just "one" sign for "away."

So the sign I show you below is more of a gesture that would only be used when dismissing an underling, (sort of like "shoo") but it provides a chance to talk about the concept.

Suppose you want to sign the concept, "We need to find a way to..."  You could instead sign, "WE NEED FIGURE HOW CAN..."

You will see the sign for "STREET" used to mean such things as "way, path, road..."  So you might see someone signing,  "WE NEED FIND STREET..." to mean, "We need to find a way."


"AWAY" as in "be gone peasant."  If using this one in real life, make sure to use a haughty expression of superiority. I don't suggest using this one on your parents.  On the other hand, it could be fun.
