SPELL: Version 2
There is another way to sign fingerspell which looks like you are
throwing a piece of paper. It uses a quick double movement.
I use this sign for sentences like: "I spelled to them." "He spelled
to me." This sign is "directional," it involves "noun/verb"
agreement. That means if you do it like in the picture it means SPELL in
general or "I SPELLED it to YOU." This version is "directional."
That means you can modify the sign by aiming it
at a third person or even at yourself. If I aim it at myself it
could mean the person I am talking about spelled something to me.
Note: if you use just a single movement with this variation it can mean SEND.
