American Sign Language: "newspaper"

Also see: PRINTER

The sign for newspaper is a noun/verb pair with the sign for PRINT.
If you mean the noun "newspaper" then do a double movement.
If you mean the verb "print" then do a single movement.


Signing note:  During high speed signing you may see "newspaper" done with a single movement (instead of the usual double movement). Don't worry about it. Language is sloppy. I'm not in charge, I just live here. - Dr. Bill



"Newspaper Article"

Note: Usually the sign for "NEWSPAPER" uses a double movement (as a noun/verb pair with "PRINT") but when compounded with the ARTICLE sign you can drop one of the movements of the NEWSPAPER sign and your meaning is still obvious.
