American Sign Language: "separate"

The sign for "separate" can also be used to mean "apart."

Here is another version of "separate" that  I saw a friend of mine doing.  To me, this version would only refer to two people who are physically separated from each other. I would not use this version as a "general" sign for separate:

SEPARATE ("two people part from each other)
