American Sign Language: "year" (advanced discussion)


See: YEAR


Skilled ASL signers often do an abbreviated version of this sign.  In the abbreviated version, the right hand doesn't actually circle the left hand.  It simply makes a very small circle above the left hand then comes to rest on top of the left hand.


LAST YEAR, (the recent year)


Sideways view of  "recent year"


LAST-YEAR:
(or "one year ago")


2 YEARS-AGO:


NEXT-YEAR:


"two years from now"  "in two years"


ANNUALLY:
For this version, the left hand stays mostly stationary and the right hand comes down and whacks it.  The right hand changes from a fist to an index as it moves down to strike the left fist.
