38. One that struck me is the word for Holocaust. It’s the sign for Jewish and then the sign for destruction.
39. If you’re signing the word long you slide your index finger over the back of your hand but if you’re being funny you can keep sliding it all the way up your arm and around your neck and down your leg.
40. In New Zealand sign language, ‘Thank you’ is the motion of touching the tip of your fingers to your chin then moving your hand forwards and down so your palm is facing upwards. In similar comparison, ‘F*** you’ is the same movement but instead of touching your chin with your fingers, you brush them under your chin. Very easy to get these two mixed up!
