SEARCH: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "search / seek / look for"

The dominant "C" hand draws two circles in front of the face.




Sample sentence: SEARCH WORK YOU? (Do you look for work?)



A student asks: "Can you do search with two hands because I remember it as two hands but that was a couple decades ago."

You might choose to use two hands to sign SEARCH if you want to be dramatic. For example you might do SEARCH with two hands if you are telling a story to children in an embellished way.

For everyday life though -- just use one hand. Otherwise you are wasting effort.
