As a Pointing Sign
1. Used to mean something is NOT owned or possessed by the person the signer is addressing. You put it before or after a noun sign to say what is possessed. English = not your.
2. Used to mean something is NOT owned or possessed by the person the signer is addressing. Used alone without saying what is NOT possessed if it is clear from context or because someone has mentioned it before. English = not yours.
1. Like the pointing signs for ‘I/me’, ‘you’, ‘he/him’, ‘she/her’, ‘it’, ‘we/us’ and ‘they/them’ this sign points in a particular direction. Also, like the possessive pointing signs ‘my/mine’, ‘your/yours’, etc., the sign points or indicates with the palm. It points in the direction of the thing or person it is referring to (in this case the addressee, i.e., ‘you’). Similarly, the other possessive signs in this dictionary can add the final negative open handshape to mean ‘not mine’, ‘not its’, ‘not his’, ‘not hers’, ‘not ours’ and ‘not theirs’.
