Sign Definition

As a Noun

1. The letter C in the one-handed manual alphabets.

Augmented Meaning

1. A single letter sign can be used alone (often with a slight outward repeated movement) to represent any word (especially proper names for people and places). When this occurs the signer often silently mouthes the word. Some letters are very commonly associated with particular words. In Auslan, the letter C from the one-handed alphabet is strongly assoicated with Canberra (the capital city of Australia).
