FRUGAL: Form your hands into 5-handshapes with middle fingers bent at the top knuckle. Each hand moves in a circle toward the chin, touches the chin, and moves downward and then away. I touch twice with my right hand only only once with the left hand.
Thank you so much for being a wonderful resource for those of use that want to learn more about ASL.
Recently, had a situation on which I would like clarification:
A man was talking about "freelance" terps and used the sign that is the "middle finger" alternated off the chin....several laughed...his comment was that, freelancers always poor/scatching to make ends meet...so that is why the sign is appropriate...i have seen a signed concept close to that for honeymoon.
I have seen and use this sign for "free-lance" interpreter, i am just not sure why this would be funny....because it is closely related to another sign???
