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.

 


SENTENCE
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."
