Divide – Separate

Recently, I needed to divide a group of people. Not necessarily in equal parts. So, I wanted to choose an appropriated signage. In this instance, which term should I choose? Thank you!

Separate – using 2 C handshapes, facing and pointing toward self, thumbs pointing upward, knuckles touching – separate to opposing sides of self

Divide – 2 B handshapes facing opposing sides of self, right B palm sits on top of left B palm, index finger, crisscross – both palms separate, swooping and facing downward

Hi Kathie,

Good question!

Since the groups are not the same number I would sign “group” plural (move this sign from left to right) and then go back and assign each group a number (again going from left to right). 

I hope this helps.

Hello,

I assume that this is the same as role shifting. Or in use of the term "And".

Thus, I am creating class/ group 1 "and" class/group 2.

I love your perspective. Thanks!
