OFTEN: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "often"
OFTEN:The tips of the bent right "b" hand touch the palm of the left hand (near the heel of the palm) then separate and move forward a couple inches, then make contact again. If you do this sign quickly, and add another movement it would mean "frequently."
Sample sentence: LIBRARY, YOU GO OFTEN?
Sample sentence: How often do you go to the library?
The sign for "frequently" can be done the same as the sign for "often." However, some people also add an extra movement and contact. Remember, the contacts move from the palm of the hand (somewhat near the heel) toward the fingertips of the hand.
