American Sign Language: "good, better, & best"

Better and best are derivatives of "GOOD."

An interesting way to think of "better" is as a combination of "GOOD + ER," and "best" as a combination of "GOOD + EST."

Good:  (For more info, check out the "GOOD" page.)

The sign for better comes out to the right a bit.

Notice that the sign for BEST makes a much bigger movement.  It actually dips down a bit for emphasis prior to moving "way up."  The more you exaggerate this sign, the more your are emphasizing how much better something is than the others.
