American Sign Language:  "they"

In general you point towards the various people or items that are being referred to and use a small sweeping movement. Sometimes if the people or items are considered a single unit or group, you might just point at the unit or group without using a sweeping movement.


You might see some people doing a pointing/sweeping gesture but using a "Y" handshape instead of an index finger (pointing) handshape.

You might also see some people spelling THY (three letters) and ending up with the "Y" somewhat palm down.
