American Sign Language: "trial"


To do the sign for trial hold two "F" hands in front of you, about 8 inches apart (the right palm facing left and the left palm facing right). Move one hand up and the other hand down at the same time (a few inches) and then switch.
 

This version of the sign "IF" can mean such things as:  court, judge, trial:
JUDGE / COURT /  IF / TRIAL

Memory tip: Think of the "scales of justice."  The movement of the sign for "JUDGE/COURT/IF/TRIAL" is similar to that of a "balance scale."


 


NOTES: 
To make this sign mean a judge (the person who presides in a courtroom) you would add the "person" sign.
Another sign for a "judge" is to mime the rapping of a gavel.  Use a fist hand (or modified "A" handshape) and do a double movement: rap rap).
Example sentence: TOMORROW I NEED GO COURT, WHY-[rhet], FAST-[speeding] TICKET.
