American Sign Language: "many"

The sign for "many" also means "lots of."




You can do the sign larger and with more facial expression to mean things like, "very many!" "bunches!" "a ton of..." etc.




The sign for "MANY" doesn't mean "how many" -- and you shouldn't just stick a "HOW" in front of "MANY" and think that it means "how many" -- it doesn't (even though you might see people doing it that way. It is a waste of effort.)  The sign "how-MANY" is similar to the sign "MANY" except that the sign "HOW-MANY" moves upward and uses a furrowed "wh-question" type of brow.
