American Sign Language:  "best"


BEST:
 


 


"BEST" and "BETTER" are derivatives of "GOOD."  

Memory Aid:  An interesting way to think of "BETTER" is as a combination of "GOOD + ER," and "BEST" as a combination of "GOOD + EST."


GOOD:  (For more info, check out the "GOOD" page.)



BETTER:
The sign for better comes out to the right a bit.


BEST:
Notice that the sign for BEST makes a much bigger movement.  It actually dips down a bit for emphasis prior to moving "way up."  The more you exaggerate this sign, the more your are emphasizing how much better something is than the others.
