American Sign Language: "sentence"
Most of us think of a sentence as a string of words or signs. But a sentence can also be a decision from a court of law regarding the punishment of a criminal.
Version 1: As in a group of words that expresses a thought.
To do this sign, hold your "F" hands together and pull them apart. I use a slightly wiggly movement as I pull them apart.
SENTENCE (version 2)
The punishment imposed upon a criminal by a judge.
Use a combination of "JUDGE" and "DECIDE."
Example: "HE/SHE JUDGE DECIDE YOU MUST JAIL 3-YEARS."
