American Sign Language:  "clock"

The sign for "clock" is a combination of the sign for "time" and using a classifier to show the general size and shape of a clock.  You can modify the classifier to show different types of clocks.  For example I generally use "C" hands to show a typical desk clock. But if I'm referring specifically to a clock up on the wall I generally use modified (rounded) "L" hands since wall clocks tend to be much thinner than desk clocks. A "wall clock" is basically a "dish" on the wall. So you would sign "TIME"+"dish on the wall" to mean wall clock. :)
