American Sign Language: "meat / steak / flesh"


Grab the fleshy part of your left hand with the index finger and thumb of your right hand. The left hand doesn't move.  The right hand wiggles a bit as if getting a good grip on the meat.  This sign means "meat" in general, but in context it can be used for "steak" or "flesh."  I remember one group of Deaf graduate students even used this sign to mean "context."

Sample sentence: Do you like meat?
