CL:5 : The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "CL:5 / classifier 5"
 

CL:5 can be used to show bunches or large groups of people, animals, or things on a surface.,
Just like an English pronoun you must first identify what you are talking about (an audience for example).  Then you can use the classifier to show how big the audience is, where they are, and how they are moving. 
 

CL:5 can be produced with the fingers bent (clawed), the hand bent or the fingers straight.
