American Sign Language: "stomach"

The concept of "stomach" can be expressed by simply patting your stomach twice.
Or use fingertips of a "bent-B" hand to poke it twice.


Or you can point to it.


Remember "signs" are not English words.

If you have a sentence like "I can't stomach the sight of blood" you should use a sign that represents the concept. For example "tolerate" (a version of the sign PATIENT) would be a good choice.

If you are in a doctor's office and need to describe the stomach in more detail you can use "classifiers" to describe the size, shape, and location of the stomach.
