American Sign Language: "recipe"
In a message dated 6/11/2013 1:23:13 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time, Elyn Tibbs, a student at cscc.edu writes:Hello Dr. Vicars,
Is there a sign for "recipe"? I cannot find the sign and many Youtube videos show people fingerspelling it.
Thank you for your time,
ASL I Student
In general the concept of "recipe" is indeed fingerspelled. I encourage you to practice spelling "recipe" over and over again until you can spell it fast enough that you are no longer concerned about finding a "sign" for it and are instead perfectly comfortable spelling it just as you see Deaf people do.
I will however mention a couple of signs related to the concept of "recipe" that you may find helpful.
CARD-(square or rectangle)
Draw a rectangle in the air with your index fingers and thumbs.
INSTRUCTIONS / describe / explain
Hold "F" hands out in front of you and slide one forward while you slide the other backward. Then alternate the movement.
