American Sign Language: "no-[wave]"
or "wave no"
This sign can be used to say "NO" in a very nice way (or a not-nice
way...depends on the severity of which you shake your head, and how much
negativity you show via your face).
This sign is a good way to say "nuh uh" or "nah." It can be used to
mean "that's not what I intended," "I'm not into that," or
"no, not for me, thanks."
To do this sign, you wave the open five hand side to side while shaking your head.
You can modify this sign to use two hands which would then mean
something along the lines of: "Whoa!" or "Oh geeze, no!" "For
goodness sake, not that!"
Both hands, (palms forward, fingers spread) wave side to side.
WAVE-NO (stronger version)
