Let's say you're working as an ASL interpreter and that you signed the concept or fingerspelled the words "side effects" in a medical context to your Deaf client. The Deaf client looks at you puzzled, as they have no idea what that means. What do you do?
A very useful ability to get skilled at is something called expansion. You may fingerspell or even sign the correct concept, but there will be situations where whoever you're signing to will not know what the word/sign means. As with the phrase "side effects" you could give a scenario of taking medication and expanding on that concept and saying that the medication is supposed to help with blood pressure, yet they may feel other undesirable symptoms such as weight gain, headaches, nausea, etc. While these are not intended, it's understood that these possibly can happen and that they shouldn't be overly alarmed in the event that they happen.

Which parable of Jesus is the only one that identifies a person by name?
The parable of Lazarus and the rich man is the only parable that specifically attributes a name to an individual in Jesus' parables.
How do you show possession when a name ends with the letter s?
If we said "Charles's book is over there" would this be correct? Many people have a tendency to add an apostrophe and another s, yet all that's required here is another apostrophe. So in reality it would be "Charles' book is over there."
