American Sign Language: "thing"

The sign for "thing" can mean, "materials," "supplies," "items," etc.



Sample sentence: "Do you like to learn new things?"


The sign "thing" is not used as part of the sign for "something." 
The "something" sign can be used to mean "something / someone / single / alone / only."




Every once in a while I see people combine the signs for "some" and "thing" to mean "something."
That has always seemed "off" to me and I don't recommend it.  The signs "SOME" and "THING" when used together means "some things."  As in: "I will bring some things to the yard sale."
