American Sign Language: "something"

The sign we label as "SOMETHING"  is also commonly labeled as "SOMEONE" or "SINGLE."  The "single/something/someone" sign has many meanings (such as "alone" or "only") that depend on the rest of your sentence.

To do this sign, point your index finger up, have the palm pointing up and somewhat back towards you. Move your hand in a small horizontal circle--as if tracing a circle the size of a quarter on the underside of a table.



Sample sentence: "Are you going steady with someone?"
