"week"  (advanced discussion)

Also see:  "next week"
Also see "week"

Okay, so you know the basic sign for week is this:

A variation of the sign that is good to know is the "double index" version.

Note: the sign WEEK can incorporate a number. 
For example you can sign "THREE WEEKS" by sliding a "3" across the palm.
This works for numbers 1 - 9.  After that you use a separate sign for the number and WEEK.
