Subject:  ASL sign for "daughter"

The signs for "girl" and "baby" are blended to become the sign for
"daughter", and even though technically it may be a compound, we are
writing it as one sign without any hyphens, partly because the sign for
"girl" actually changes as it moves down into the sign for "baby"...The
movement changes from two brushes on the cheek in "girl", to one long brush
and stroke that connects the sign for "girl" and "baby".....The movement
symbol, in other words, took the place of the hyphen.
