Sign Definition

As a Verb or Adjective

1. To have seen or done something before the time of speaking.

Augmented Meaning

1. Auslan verb signs usually do not change to show time (i.e. past, present and future tense). However, there are a few exceptions, almost all of them made by joining the verb sign with a sign derived from one of two signs meaning 'finish'. The two signs are made like a single sign and often the overall meaning of the sign can change, as in this example.
