American Sign Language: "ink"
There is an old sign that I swear I saw in a book in my youth. Maybe it was in Martin Sternberg's old ASL dictionary classic -- will have to check. Anyway the sign is:
INK: Dominant hand: upside-down-"i"-handshape-(as if representing a pen or quill), Non-dominant hand: sideways-(pinkie-edge-down)-"O"handshape-(as if representing a small bottle). Movement: Dip the pen into the ink twice.
Of course, these days most experts would say to simply "spell it.
