American Sign Language
- (hands don't quite contact each other) 1@Sfhead-PalmDown 1@NearRadialHand-PalmDown-1@InsideChesthigh-PalmDown
- (simplified by moving the initial posture closer to the final one) 1@NearUlnarHand-PalmUp-1@CenterChesthigh-PalmUp 1@RadialHand-PalmDown-1@CenterChesthigh-PalmDown
Compound of 1@NearSfhead-PalmDown 1@Sfhead-PalmDown (“think”) and 1@RadialHand-PalmDown-1@CenterChesthigh-PalmDown Contact (“same”). The typical ASL compounding process for such signs drops the initial move of the first component and the contact and optional repetition of the second component.
- This two-handed ASL sign is produced as follows:
- Posture the dominant hand in with the tip of the index finger touching the side of the forehead, palm facing down.
- Hold the dominant hand still briefly.
- Posture the nondominant hand in in the center of the space in front of the chest, palm facing down, finger pointing forward. At the same time, move the dominant hand so the radial edge of the index finger contacts that of the nondominant hand, palm facing down, finger pointing forward.
- Hold both hands still briefly.
- (agree): 1@Sfhead-PalmDown 1@TipFinger-FingerAcross-1@CenterChesthigh-FingerAcross 1@FromTipFinger-1@InsideChesthigh (“disagree”)
