American Sign Language: "sandwich"
In the sign for "sandwich" your dominant hand is flat and represents
some kind of meat or "sandwich filling." Your non-dominant hand is
bent at the large knuckles and the thumb is extended forward (pointing in
the same direction as the fingers). The non-dominant hand represents a
couple of slices of bread and looks as if it is holding a sandwich.
Place the meat between the two slices of bread (put your dominant hand
between the thumb and fingers of your non-dominant hand) and bring the
"sandwich" up to your mouth.
Note: Another way to do the above version is to place the meat
into the bread twice without bringing it up to the mouth.
There is yet another way to sign "sandwich" that places both
flat hands together (palms touching) and aims them at the mouth.
It is a bit awkward but I consider it to be a good version for
talking about a "hoagie" or "submarine" type sandwich.
