LINGUISTIC, but I think they meant the adjective and not the academic field.

To sign "linguistics" do a modified version of the sign for "LANGUAGE."  Hold two "L" hands in front of you, palms down, about three inches distance between your thumbs (which are pointing at each other. The index fingers are pointing forward). Then, VERY quickly move both hands to the sides six inches while changing them into "S" hands with a very firm, solid ending. There is no wavy movement. No double movement. Just a quick changing from L's into "S" hands.
