American Sign Language: "hot" & "cold"

This page shows the main signs for "HOT" and for "COLD." 


Make the sign for "hot" by forming a "claw" or a loose "c" with your dominant hand. Place your thumb and fingers at the sides of your mouth. Quickly turn your hand forward and down as if removing something hot from your mouth.

No, that isn't the sign for my wife's cooking. She is a very good cook thank you.  Hey now, stop laughing. She is!
- Dr. Bill



Make the sign for "cold" by forming both hands into the letter "s."  Hold both hands in front of you and shake them as if shivering from the cold.
