American Sign Language: "serendipity"


In a message dated 9/16/2014 11:05:11 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, an ASL teacher writes:

Hi Dr. Bill,
There is a current, popular song called "Sweet Serendipity" by Lee DeWyze.
One of my students wants to 'sign it in sign.'
I have no idea how to sign 'serendipity.'
Serendipity - definition: The occurrence, due to sheer happenstance, of happy or beneficial events.
Suggestions?

Dear [Name on File],
How about "LUCKY?"  ;-)
I suppose a signer could preface LUCKY with "pop-up"-[appear] or "happen."
- Dr. Bill
 


See: LUCKY
See: POP-UP [APPEAR]
See: HAPPEN
