American Sign Language: "heart"
The concept of "heart" can be expressed a couple of different
ways in ASL.
A good general way is to poke your chest twice with the tip of the middle finger of a modified
"five" hand that has the middle finger bent at the large knuckle.
If you just poke once using a somewhat larger movement it means "touched" as
in "I was touched by his generosity."
Version two: Draw a heart shape on your chest with the tips of both index fingers.
Start at the top center of the heart.
Version three: Instead of using the tips of the index fingers to
draw a heart on your chest,
use the tips of the middle fingers of modified "five" hands that have the
middle fingers bent at the large knuckle.
