The sign for "conclude" is the same as "end" right? Is conclusion the
same? As I read things, I tend to 'interpret' them in my head. I came
across a reading with "conclusion" and "summarize" in the same sentence.
How would you correctly sign that?
No rush, just wondering.
To sign SUMMARIZE, I'd use:
Conclude can mean "end" so you could sign
Conclude can mean "agree" so you could sign AGREE
Conclude can mean "decide" so you could sign
Conclude can mean "deduce" so you could sign THINK
Conclude can mean for a group to decide, so you could sign "COLLUDE"
DECIDE. (The sign COLLUDE
(different word than conclude) is
a modified version of the sign "MEETING." The hands flutter
together and then you sign decide.
At the end of a long talk I've seen people sign: "In conclusion" using
the sign for "close."
