American Sign Language: "balloon"
The sign for "balloon" is done in ASL by miming the action of blowing up a balloon.
The "noun" form of the sign BALLOON is done smaller and quicker than the verb form. The verb form is done larger and (a bit) slower -- as if you were actually blowing up a balloon. The sentence will also provide context. If you use a sign like HAVE or MY prior to the sign for BALLOON it will be fairly obvious that you are talking about the thing and not the process of blowing up a balloon.
