This index lists ASL signs that begin with the dominant hand making the “1” handshape.

Although the index finger is usually fully extended, when "1" is produced in certain orientations and locations, the base joint is typically flexed (1^o-f) for ease of production so that the index finger is perpendicular to the palm, making it look similar to the "G" handshape.

“1” at or near the finger(s) of the nondominant hand[edit]


“1” at or near the palm side of the nondominant hand[edit]


“1” at or near the radial (thumb) side of the nondominant hand[edit]


“1” at or near the upper part of the forehead[edit]


“1” at or near the lower part of the head[edit]


“1” at the torso[edit]


“1” in or beside the space in front of the torso[edit]
