American Sign Language: "San Diego"

The sign for "San Diego" as in "San Diego, California" is done by spelling an "S" and a "D." 

(Model: Byron Cantrell)

Dr. Bill's notes:
You might notice a very slight forward movement as the "S" changes into a "D."  This is not a conscious thing. It is just a natural aspect of activating the muscles to change the "S" handshape into a "D" handshape. If I were you I wouldn't "try" to do that micro forward movement, just focus on spelling "S" and "D" and you'll notice it happening naturally.
