American Sign Language: "above"

The sign for "above" varies depending on if you mean "hovering over" or if you mean "more than."  Much of the time we simply use classifiers to show where things are in relation to each other.

Hold your base hand (non-dominant hand) steady while circling your dominant hand above it. The movement is as if you were washing off a table.



"above" = MORE-THAN:
