American Sign Language: "conflict"



To do the sign for "conflict," smack your hands together (not too hard though eh). Your hands are in "index finger" handshapes.

CONFLICT:

Memory aid:  Think of a jousting tournament where two horse riders with lances come into conflict.


 



Here is another sign for CONFLICT.  I prefer the version above, but since some people use this version I figure I'd best show it to you.  See my notes below:


CONFLICT (version)




This version of the sign for "conflict" can also mean "INTERSECTION" as in an intersection between two roads. If the meaning isn't clear via context and you need to distinguish between the two concepts you could add an "annoyed" or "mad" facial expression to this sign to cause it to mean "conflict" rather than "intersect."
