American Sign Language: "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.



"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 slides outward over the top/side of the left hand and index finger.  If you are holding a drink or a sandwich in your left hand you can even do this sign without the left hand! (Like most signs actually).  See "week (advanced)"

Also see:  "next week"

Also see: "weekend"
