Some common words in Sign Language

I believe in accessibility for everyone to communicate, so, here are some signs of words that we use on a daily basics.

Signing: To greet someone with a hello, make the sign by extending your fingers and cross your thumb in front of your palm. Now take the hand, and start with your hand in front of your ear and extend it outward and away from your body. Finally, smile!

SigningGoodbye is the same as the traditional gesture for the word. Open your palm, folding down your fingers, then open your palm again. Usage: Goodbye is a good initial sign that you can use with baby and friends.

Signing: To sign good morning you combine the signs for good and morning

Good Morning in Baby Sign Language

Here are the phrases “Good morning”, “Good afternoon” and “Goodnight” in ASL. They can be learned by first signing GOOD and then the signs for MORNING, AFTERNOON, and NIGHT. Above, you’ll see how each may be compounded to one movement for more fluid signing, particularly “Good morning” and “Goodnight”.

The sign for “thank you” is made by starting with the fingers of your dominant hand near your lips. Your hand should be a “flat hand.” Move your hand forward and a bit down in the direction of the person you are thanking. Smile (so they’ll know you mean it).

American Sign Language: “please” The sign for “please” is made by placing your flat right hand over the center of your chest. Move your hand in a clockwise motion (from the observer’s point of view, use a circular motion towards your left, down, right, and back up) a few times.
