American Sign Language:  "now"


Also see: TODAY



NOW:
Move the "Y" hands down a few inches. Your palms should be facing upward.
Note: If you use a double motion on this version of the sign for now, it can be interpreted as TODAY.

 

 



NOW (old version)
Another version of the sign NOW/CURRENT/presently  is made by placing both of your hands in front of you. 
Each hand should be bent upward. 
Note:
Most people prefer to use the "y" handshape. 
Sharply drop both hands a short distance. 

 



"TODAY" (version) / "right now" [NOW+NOW]
The meaning of this sign depends on what the other person asked. For example, if the other person asks you what time is the meeting?  If you respond "NOW+NOW" it would mean "right now" or currently.
If someone asks you what day the party is, you can respond by signing "NOW + NOW."
The double "NOW" is interpreted to mean "today."
