American Sign Language: person / agent / individual / or "one who does"

The sign for "person" is often initialized with the letter "P" but when used in combination with other signs you do not use initialization and just use "flat" hands.

When done with "flat" hands, the sign "PERSON," in general, represents "one who does something."
For example, when used with teach, (TEACH + PERSON) it means "teacher."




For a more advanced discussion of "agent" see: AGENT.
Also see:  PEOPLE
