Please select a term or type in a term for its definition.

In all descriptions of the signs, the right hand is always written as R. and the left hand as L. The signs' main meanings are shown in capital letters. Non-manual features (facial and bodily expression) are given in bold type. Signs are drawn and described as if the signer is right-handed. Left handed signers will use the reverse of this with the left hand as dominant. From the thumb, the fingers are referred to as index, middle, ring and little finger.
