In "high context" situations, the concept of "winter" can be
expressed in ASL by simply signing "COLD."
Many people just sign
"cold" when they mean "winter." That is okay as long as you can
figure out the meaning
from the context of the sentence. If there is any
ambiguity (if it isn't clear) as to the meaning, then you can use an
initialized sign that uses "W" handshapes on the sign "cold."
Sample sentence: Does it snow here in the winter? = WINTER HERE SNOW?
