American Sign Language: "man"


There are several versions of this sign.

They are all out there being used by various people.
 I use the first one because it is more popular where I live, but I think the second version makes more "sense."

 

MAN:  (Version A)
The first part of this sign is similar to the sign "father" and then moves down to touch the chest.


(p.s. If you start this sign at the chin and move it down to the chest it means "woman.")
(p.p.s. No, I don't know where you can buy a cool sweater like the one I'm wearing here.)
(p.p.p.s. No, it doesn't matter how much you offer me, I won't sell you mine. It was a gift.)
 



MAN:  (Version B)

 



MAN:  (Version C)
Note: this version isn't used much.  This third version could be used to indicate that someone is no longer a child but is a man (male + adult).
