  • This two-handed ASL sign is produced as follows:
    1. Posture the nondominant hand in the “open B” handshape about half an arm's length in front of the center of the trunk (typically with the upper arm hanging straight down from the shoulder, the elbow bent at a right angle, and the forearm pointing diagonally ahead from the elbow), nondominant palm facing up. Posture the dominant hand in the “Flat O” handshape within a couple of inches of the nondominant palm, backs of the extended or bent fingers of the dominant hand facing down.
    2. Move the dominant hand down so the back of the fingers contact the nondominant palm at least twice.
