Hello! Could someone provide the gloss for the “Is there a bus?” clip in Module 4.7? I'm having trouble undertanding what that last sign means.
Module 4.7 “Is there a bus?” gloss

Hi there, good question! The gloss is “area bus have” - the signer is using a modified version of the sign “have." While the full sign is done with two hands, it is not uncommon to see it signed with one hand, like he is doing in the video. A signer might choose to use a one-handed version of the sign in a variety of settings for multiple reasons, but it is generally just personal preference and flow of signing that dictates whether you use a one-handed or two-handed version of this sign. Keep up the good work and happy learning!
