English Idioms translated to ASL

Many of these signs don't include idiomatic translations in the Sign Puddle 
dictionary. For some, I have gone back and copied the sign in the dictionary, then 
added English words and phrases to expand the definition of the previously 
entered sign in the past.  This helps my ASL students to find a sign when they try 
to look it up.

I am also interested in creating an easy reference for common ASL idioms and 
phrases.  So you suggest this be done in the literature puddle rather than the 
dictionary Val?  Figuring out how to index something for someone else to find later 
as needed is sometimes a challenge :-)
