American Sign Language: "uncle"

To do the sign for "uncle" hold a "U" hand to the side of your head.  Twist it twice. The sign Uncle is done higher up than the sign "Aunt."


Uncle: (variation)
Some people shake a "U" handshape side to side using a very small repeated movement. Again, the position is to the side of your head, a bit higher up. (Near your ear or higher, rather than near your cheek or lower.)
