American Sign Language:  "possession"

To establish that something belongs to someone, you can aim the flat of your palm at the person or thing that is doing the possessing.  See "my."

Also see: HAVE


Use a sweeping "b-palm" off to the right-hand side.  Or, if the group is somewhere in the room, do it in their direction.

This sign can mean, his, hers, or its.
For "ITS" I angle the palm a little more downward and/or toward that to which I'm referring.
