1@Side-PalmForward SmallSidetoside

American Sign LanguageEdit


  • This one-handed ASL sign is produced as follows:
    1. Posture the dominant hand in the “1” handshape about half an arm's length in front of the shoulder, palm facing forward.
    2. Move the finger in a repeated, small side-to-side motion, pivoting at the wrist.
  • When used interrogatively, this sign is produced with furrowed eyebrows, squinted eyes, head tilted, and a very small headshake (i.e. pivoting slightly from side to side, not nearly so much as that of a “no” gesture).
