American Sign Language: "tease" "just kidding" / joking


TEASE: use two "X" hands.  Put the dominant hand on top of the non-dominant hand.  Slide the top hand forward twice. Keep the bottom hand still (it doesn't move). Remember to use a double movement.

Here is a side view of the "end" position of the sign "tease."

Here is a side version of the sign TEASE:  Notice how in his picture it is good natured teasing. (See the facial expression). Use a double movement.

Note:  Someone asked me how to sign "Just joking." 
You could use the sign "tease" to mean you were / are "just joking.
Another thing you could do would be to spell the letters JK to mean "just kidding.
