American Sign Language: "pole"

The sign for "pole" depends on what type of pole you are referring to.

For a typical cylindrical pole you can use "C" hands to describe the general shape and orientation of the pole. Then you could use an INDEX FINGER to represent that pole in relation to other concepts in your story.

POLE (Version: flagpoles, upright cylindrical objects or tubes)

Note: When telling stories where you are role-playing it helps to use your eyegaze to look at the objects you create.
For example:


POLE (Version: "conceptual poles" -- such as the "North Pole")
If you want to express the concept of "pole" as in "the North Pole" you would sign NORTH and then spell P-O-L-E.
