American Sign Language: "explain," "describe," or "instructions"



Both hands are in "F" handshapes.  Use an alternating forward and back motion.  As you slide one hand forward, slide the other backward. Repeat a couple times.  The hands do not go up and down, just forward and back. 

EXPLAIN:





Sample sentence: Can you explain algebra to me? = ALGEBRA CAN YOU EXPLAIN ME?
 


 


 

Notes:
If you move your hands ("F" handshapes) up and down alternately it means "judge/court/if."
