  • This two-handed ASL sign has two postures:
    1. Posture the dominant hand in the “A” handshape near the body, lateral with the dominant shoulder, at shoulder height, palm facing back, thumb on top. Posture non-dominant hand in the “flat B” handshape about an elbow's length out from the center body, chest high, palm facing down, fingers pointing toward the dominant side.
      • Move the dominant hand repeatedly frontward toward the nondominant side and backward toward the dominant side to the next posture while holding the non-dominant hand in this posture.
