American Sign Language: "measure / measurement / size / engineer"

Form both hands into "Y" shapes.  Touch the hands together at the thumbtips.
NOTE: The sign MEASURE-(measuring – verb form) starts with the thumbs touching and twists (pivoting at the thumb) so that the pinkies move up and down in an alternating fashion.



NOTE: The sign MEASUREMENT-( noun form) starts separated by about an inch then moves together so that the thumbs touch.


The sign MEASURE+AGENT-(engineer) adds a “person" ending to the verb form of the sign MEASURE.
