American Sign Language: "future"


The sign for "future" is made by slicing a "flat hand" forward through the air.  The farther you move your hand, the further into the the future you are referring.  This sign can also mean such things as "WILL" as in, "Will you go to college?" (YOU FUTURE COLLEGE YOU?).  You can also use a double arching movement to mean "someday" or "the distant future."  If you do a single large strong movement it can mean "a long time from now."

FUTURE:
 

"Do you think someday you will teach ASL?"


 



Far in the future:
Use a bigger movement that goes farther.
