COST: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "cost / fee / fine / worth / value"
The sign for COST may vary depending on the context in which you are using it.
The sign for "COST-[fee / fine]" is made by extending your non-dominant hand in front of you in a "flat" handshape.
Make the letter "X" with your dominant hand (palm back). Strike the palm of your non-dominant hand with the top of your "x" finger using a downward movement.
COST-[fee / fine]:
Sample sentence: YOUR ASL BOOK COST HOW-MUCH-[1h]?
The sign for "COST-[worth / value]" is a variation of the sign IMPORTANT. COST-[worth / value] taps two "F" hands together twice at the tips of the thumbs and index fingers. (Which happens to be the ending position of the sign "important.") This can be used to ask: "What is that worth?" or "What is the cost of?"
COST-[worth / value]:
Sample sentence: YOUR CAR NOW VALUE-[worth]?
