American Sign Language: "graduate"



The sign for "graduate" uses a "G" hand.  The "G" hand does a somersault movement and lands on the palm of the base hand.

GRADUATE (verb form)

 



Sample sentence: "When do/did you graduate from college?"
= COLLEGE, YOU GRADUATE WHEN?


 



Notes:

The above sign is not the same sign as used for "graduate school." I need to post that sign, but what it looks like is you cross your wrists, palms facing back, the dominant hand is in a "2" or "V" handshape. The non-dominant hand is in a "5" handshape. You generally do a very small tapping contact at the wrist.
