In ASL, the sign for "no" is a universal gesture recognized by Deaf and hearing individuals alike. It's a powerful and straightforward way to convey refusal or negation without the need for spoken language, highlighting the clarity and efficiency of sign communication.
This can be signed politely with a soft, double motion. If you want to place emphasis, you can do a firm singular motion.
