American Sign Language:  "no"

The sign "NO" can use either a polite double motion or a more firm or definite single motion.  It is also directional in nature--meaning, if I hold my hand off to my right and I point the palm toward myself while doing the sign, it can mean "He told me no." 

A firm, solid "no" as in a command.  Uses one motion.

Another variation of no uses a double motion and a negative headshake.

Is done similar to the normal sign for "no" except that it starts off toward the right and moves in toward your body.
