American Sign Language: "won't"

The sign for "won't" uses an "A" handshape. Hold the hand in front of you and then pull it back sharply.


Memory aid:  Imagine someone has grabbed you by the wrist and is trying to pull you forward to go do something you don't want to do.  You pull your hand and arm backward and away from the person because you "won't" go with him/her.

This sign also means "refuse."
