Sign Definition

As a Pointing Sign

  1. Before a verb it means the person the signer is talking to does the action alone.
  2. After a verb it means the person the signer is talking to is alone responsible for the action (the person does it without any help), or it means the action was done by that person to that person. English = yourself.

Augmented Meaning

  1. Like the pointing signs for I, ME, YOU, HE, SHE, IT, WE, THEY, etc., this sign can point in any direction. Also, like the possessive pointing sign MY/MINE, YOU/YOURS, etc., the sign 'points' with the palm. It points in the direction of the thing or person it is referring to so when it is modified in this way it can mean other things and people too, like: MYSELF, ITSELF, HIMSELF, HERSELF, OURSELVES, THEMSELVES.
  2. There are two other variations of this sign. The first can also be made starting with a handshape like the one-handed alphabet letter D. The second starts with a flicking handshape. Search for "yourself" to see the others.
  3. This sign is often made using two hands. You hold an upright Point handshape on your left or subordinate hand. This acts as a point of reference for the right or dominant hand. There is usually final contact of your dominant hand on the subordinate hand.
