WEEK: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "week"

The sign for "week" has a couple of variations. The basic sign for "week" is made by forming your dominant hand into an index-finger handshape and moving your hand forward over the palm of your non-dominant hand.




Sample sentence: One week has how many days?




The sign WEEK can also be done with the left hand (or non-dominant hand) in an "index finger" handshape, palm facing right.  The right hand (or dominant hand) slides outward over the top/side of the non-dominant hand and index finger.  If you are holding a drink or a sandwich in your non-dominant hand you can even do this sign without the non-dominant hand! (Like most signs actually).  See "WEEK-[advanced]"
