How To Sign More in Sign Language

In American Sign Language (ASL), the sign for "more" is commonly taught to beginners and is even used in baby sign language because of its simplicity and usefulness. Here's how to sign "more":

Signing "More"

  1. Hand Position: Both hands should form an "O" shape, which is achieved by touching the tips of your thumb and fingers together, creating a circle. The rest of the fingers are closed together.
  2. Placement: Position both of your hands in front of you, at about chest level.
  3. Movement: Tap the fingertips of both hands together a couple of times.
  4. Facial Expression: Typically, there isn't a specific facial expression tied to the sign for "more," but context is important. For instance, if you're eagerly asking for more of something, your facial expression would convey that eagerness.
