meeting


This is a general sign that means "a meeting."  It would not be appropriate to use this sign in the sentence: nice to meet you.  For that, see the "meet" page.

Hi Bill,
Sorry to bother you. Just wanted to know, if you were talking about
a Family Reunion, would that be the same as signing. FAMILY+PICNIC? Or is there another
sign for that.

Thank you
Jerry


Hi Jerry,

For "family reunion" I've always signed "FAMILY AGAIN MEETING." Note...the sign meeting uses all the fingers and the thumb of both hands and is different from the sign "meet" which only uses the index fingers of each hand.

Another good way to sign family reunion would be to sign "FAMILY" and then sign "gather to central place."  (I'll have to post the sign "gather to one place" at this web someday.

Bill
