Children, I believe those would be conversational phrases.

An ASL idiom would be something like "true-business" or "I, I, I "

That's not an idiom that's a sign. Idioms are typically a combination of two signs, for example: mind+freeze or mind+escape.

I don't think they are coming back to learn it.
That is the weirdest thing, three people new in two days giving non-examples of idioms.

It's like the Twilight Zone.

I myself being an ASL student, try not to put much stock into all of what ASLpro.com says. It can be a good reference but often times I find that it is not what I had learned in class (sign being different) or with it only being a small clipped video than a full class, some meaning is lost in translation. Best to ask those who use the language than anything else.

So Bott, give us some idioms! smiles

Idioms ( In a hurry due to new granddaughter and busy )

1. "Legs in air" = Suddenly taken sick.

2. "I, I, I," repeatedly on chest = Egotistical

3. " Train Gone Sorry" or "Ship Sailed" = Already been discussed.

4. "Finish, Touch" = Been there and done that

5. "Vomit" = I hate that

6. "Swallow pride" = I feel like a fool..


Anybody else who wants to help the students feel free and I need an assistant for a day or two!!

Yay! Thank you Bottesini I learned #4 in class. seems to be a tricky one, least the class had some problems. But #2, it is letter "I" right? Not pointing to oneself repeatedly? Just for clarification for myself

Basement means Stayed home

Fish means I am done

"I,I,I" yes is done as the letter not pointing to self.
