American Sign Language: "afternoon"

To do the sign for "afternoonjust hold your dominant flat hand at a "2 o'clock" position pointing ahead and somewhat up.


Sample sentence: "Do you work in the afternoon?" = AFTERNOON WORK YOU?

Afternoon:  Variation:  Some people do a very, very small bounce of the right arm:

EVERY-AFTERNOON:  To sign "every-afternoon" start by holding the right arm over close to the crook of the left elbow. Then slide the sign "afternoon" toward the right until it is in the normal position. The left arm doesn't move in this sign--only the right arm moves.

ALL-AFTERNOON:  Do a deliberate forward swing of the dominant hand.
