NOTES:
 

Idioms: ASL has a number of genuine idioms.  See: "ASL Idioms"

National Captioning Institute
 

Note: Most adults know what an egg yolk is. But what if you were talking to a child who didn't know what that meant? By signing "yellow round-thing" it would be clear that you were talking about a yolk. You could sign "YELLOW CL:C-"index and thumb."
 

Note: “What does “train-gone” mean? Deaf people use this sign to mean "you missed it" and we aren't going to take the time to rehash the story so you can know what we are talking about.
