Make or Make Out?
Issues with Similar Sign Shapes can be caused by an unclear understanding of the 5 Parameters (as discussed in Tip #1) that go into each sign.
Any of the parameters may be similar or overlapping and may create issues for signers and interpreters. For example:
Make versus Make out involves differences in:
- "make" signed with fists touching
- "make out" signed with right wrist touching left fist & left wrist touching right fist
- "make" signed moving fists right to left in opposite directions
- "make out" signed with fists moving upward and downward
