American Sign Language:  "have"

Hold "bent" handshapes a few inches out from your upper chest.  Move your hands back and touch your chest.


The handshape is a "bent" hand. The thumb is not tucked in.
The handshape looks like this:

HAVE (version)
It is common to see this sign done with just one hand. (Especially if you are eating a sandwich at the time.)

Also see: "don't have"
