American Sign Language: "pass"

PASS:  The right hand moves past the left hand.  Your right hand (or left hand if you are left hand dominant) moves.  The left hand doesn't move (stays stationary).


Sample sentence: Have you passed trigonometry?  = T-R-I-G YOU FINISH PASS YOU?




Regarding the sign "trigonometry" in the practice sentence: Realistically, if there is sufficient context (if we've been talking about math) I just spell T-R-I-G.  It is good to know both versions (the initialized "MATH" version using "T"-hands, and the fingerspelled version.
