American Sign Language:  "subway"

To sign "subway," slide the "Y" hand back and forward underneath the "flat" hand as if showing a subway car moving underground.  Note: This version also works well to refer to "Subway" sandwich shops.


Sample sentence: YOUR CITY HAVE SUBWAY? (Is there a subway in your city?)


SUBWAY (version 2)

SUBWAY (version 3)  (NOT recommended)

Note:  I use a double movement for subway.  In the CL:3 version above, I'm aiming the "subway" train toward my elbow. Compare this version of the sign "SUBWAY" to the sign for "GARAGE."   The palm orientation is different for GARAGE (it points forward).
