A-LOT: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "a-lot / much / bunch"

The sign for "a lot" is a variation of the sign "big" except that the hands on "a lot" are "loose 5 handshapes" and are pointed a bit more upward.


This sign can be used to mean "much" or to indicate a large amount of something "uncountable" (such as "a lot of water.")




Sample sentence: Do you eat a lot or regular?




Suppose you wanted to say, "A whole bunch!"  You can modify the sign "a lot" by adding more facial expression (check out the wild and crazy eyes eh?) and a bit of a hold just after you start the sign and then use a fast strong finish:



Also see: MUCH
