Dr. Bill,
Is there one accepted sign for bully? Especially one that would be used in an elementary school.
Thank you for your help!

Hello Erin,

Yes, there is a specific sign for "bully."  It forms "horns" on the dominant hand (as a "Y" hand) and then presses the knuckles of that hand up against the non-dominant upright flat-hand palm and twists the dominant hand twice (the non-dominant hand doesn't move).

Sentence: Have you ever been bullied? = PAST YOU EXPERIENCE BULLY YOU?
