The sign for "note" means "to record," "make a note of something," "write something down,"
or "put it down on paper."
Handshape = modified "O"-hand, changes into a flat hand.
NOTE / RECORD:
Deaf college students sometimes use note-takers in class so they can focus on the
interpreter. This is somewhat less common now than before due to laptops
and/or netbooks etc. making it possible to touch-type your notes and still
pay attention to the terp.
You can use the sign "NOTE" to mean "note-taker" by adding the "person."
= NOTE + PERSON
Sample sentence: "Deaf college students need notetakers why?"
I'll be changing that sentence soon because it gives the wrong impression
that I need a notetaker. I don't "need" one. Once in a while they are
nice to have, but I get along just fine without one. Especially if I have my
laptop handy. Instead the sentence should say something to the effect of
"sometimes use" (rather than "need.")
