Word for Thought

While we know that we have some suffixes in ASL, such as -ER. E.g. TEACH+PERSON in ASL for "teacher" in ASL.

While it appears that there is little research on prefixes in ASL. Based on my observation of everyday conversations in sign language, the ASL prefix "REAL+[WORD] seems to be the case. Delete the movement, only index finger onto the chin + [WORD].
