American Sign Language: "home"

The sign for "home" is made by bringing your fingers and thumb together and touching your cheek at the side of your mouth. Then move your hand an inch or two toward your ear and touch your cheek again.



Note: If you do the sign HOME using a "D" handshape it means "dorm."


Memory aid:
Think of "home" as being the place where you eat and sleep.

Note: The sign isn't done on the mouth. It is done on the cheek. The above is just a way to remember the sign.
