American Sign Language: "pudding"
There is no one specific widely recognized sign for pudding.
Of course, some people just spell it.
however spell it and then sign "SOUP" (because the sign for "soup"
is represented by eating from a bowl with a spoon). Still
others upon first reference will spell PUDDING and then sign
SWEET-SOUP. Then for the rest of the conversation will simply
sign "SOUP" or "SWEET" but not both. I personally only talk
about pudding about once every few years but when I do I spell
"pudding" if I'm chatting with an adult and I do the "SWEET SOUP"
version if I'm chatting with a small child.
PUDDING = SWEET + SOUP:

Do you know of an ASL sign for
pudding? It is one of my son's favorite foods and I can't seem to
find a sign for it anywhere. Thank you for your wonderful
website. I look forward to receiving the Superdisk soon.
There is no strongly established sign for pudding. There are various
ways to convey the concept:
1. Spell it the first time in the conversation, then sign "soup" after
that for the remainder of the conversation.
2. Sign SWEET + SOUP
Initialize the sign SOUP with a "P" handshape.
Methods one and two would be considered ASL. Method three would
generally be considered "Signed English."
