ASL: "correct"


If you mean correct as in accurate or "to be right" about something then use the "RIGHT" sign/

RIGHT / accurate / correct:
See: https://youtu.be/0nq-8ZTXrFo
 



If you mean "correct" as in to grade papers or to provide critique then use the sign "CANCEL / criticize / to correct" -- which can be used in context to mean:
- indicate errors in, show mistakes in, point out faults in
- tell (someone) that they are mistaken
 



 

Notes:
If you mean "correct" as in "I corrected (fixed) my mistakes" you have a number of sign choices or possibilities depending on the situation. Here are a few suggestions:

IMPROVE
incremental-IMPROVE
ADJUST ( https://youtu.be/57ngmG53xB4 )
FIX (to fix something I built or created)
SOLVE
BETTER NOW
STOP (as in stopped doing the "bad" thing)
