I am curious as to why there isn't a sign for "cover' as in to put something on top of something else, or to cover a lie, etc. Is there another word that should be used in place of either of those secondary meanings? Thank you!

Hi Alex, 

Good questions!

I looked into your questions today and here is what I found:

We have the sign for "deceive" which will be linked to "cover up." 

And you're right, we will shoot the sign for putting the cover on something (like a lid).

Thank you for asking!

I should just carry around a thesaurus. I'll put on an app on my phone. Of course, deceive to "cover up" that makes perfect sense. I don't know why I was struggling with that. Thank you so much for such a quick response. It's so great. You guys are awesome. 

 

Alex.
