LEND and BORROW are basically the same sign.
You start the sign near the lender who has the thing being loaned, and you move
the sign toward the borrower who ends up with the thing being loaned.
Remember, this is an ASL concept. It is NOT just a translation of
= "I'm going to lend it to you."
= "You can borrow it"
Remember, this sign moves toward the person who is
ending up with the money or the object.
me-LEND-you = you=BORROW-from-me:
= "You lend to me."
= "I borrow from you."
"Could you please lend me $5.00?" and "Could I please borrow
you-LEND-me = me-BORROW-from-you
If you wanted to sign, "I lent it to him" you'd start the sign near you and move
it out and to your right (or wherever "he" is).
Similarly, if you
wanted to sign "He lent it to me" you'd start from a position out to
your right and move the sign in toward your torso. (Lefties tend to do
things mirror image.)
