Note: "GROW (shift) GROW" means to sign "GROW" then move the sign a bit to the side and sign it again. This is a way of saying "garden." Some people sign "GROW" with a "G" handshape and call it an "initialized" form of the sign for garden, (I'd put that in the category of signed English rather than ASL).
Note: When done with two hands and a slight back, down, forward arching
movement, a version of the sign LOW can also mean "demote."
Note: "MOW" is shown by doing a short little double movement that looks
like you are pushing a lawn mower.
Sample sentence: Every-SATURDAY GRASS MOW
Note: "qm-w" stands for "question mark wiggle." That is the process of
holding an "index finger / x" hand up at the end of a sentence and wiggling
the index finger (flexing it a few times so it changes back and forth a few
times from a slightly bent index finger to an "x" handshape). This
sign is sometimes used to add a bit of doubt, incredulousness, or levity to
questions. As if to say, "I'm not so sure you are telling me the truth
Note: When you see a sign glossed with an "!" exclamation point after it that means you should emphasize the sign. Sign it a bit faster and/or a bit more exaggerated than normal.
