A great way to remember how to make the Signs for tableware is pretty simple. What you do with the objects relates to the signs. For example, napkin is a wiping motion on the mouth; spoon uses a scooping motion; fork has a stabbing motion; knife has a cutting motion. Here are some example sentences:

  • English: I need another place setting, please.

    Sign: PLEASE — KNIFE FORK SPOON — NEED ME

  • English: The plate and glass are broken.

    Sign: PLATE — GLASS — BROKEN
