American Sign Language:  "why"

The sign for "why" is made by touching (or coming near) your forehead with the fingers of your dominant hand then while bringing your hand forward and down , change it to the letter "y," keeping your palm facing you. 



WHY (variation)
Here is another version of the sign, "WHY."  Notice the ending handshape?  The index finger isn't bent.  The middle finger and sometimes both the middle finger and the ring finger "wiggle" a couple times.
