Most of the time the concept of "bag" is going
to just be spelled: "B-A-G." Spelling "bag" is actually faster than
doing a sign for it.
At high speed the "A" gets morphed a bit and the spelling just looks
like a "sign."
Did you pay attention to what I just said?
Do you think I type this stuff out because I like typing?
I told you to spell the concept of "bag" = B-A-G.
Some of you are afraid of fingerspelling and are going to be
stubborn and want a "sign" for bag.
Fine. If you feel like looking silly here it is:
Now don't show up in your
local ASL class or at a Deaf event and say, Dr. Bill says this is
the sign for "bag."
Nope. I didn't tell you to sign that. I told you to spell it.
