Sample sentence: "Do you work in the afternoon?" = AFTERNOON WORK YOU?

EVERY-AFTERNOON:  To sign "every-afternoon" start by holding the right arm over close to the crook of the left elbow. Then slide the sign "afternoon" toward the right until it is in the normal position. The left arm doesn't move in this sign--only the right arm moves.


ALL-AFTERNOON:  Do a deliberate forward swing of the dominant hand.
