American Sign Language: "argue"


Think of how people point fingers at each other when they argue.


ARGUE:
Version 1:  The fingers go up and down together:


 



Version 2:  The fingers uses an alternating movement.

 



Notes:

Interesting -- I found that when I signed version 2 to myself "off camera" I tended to open my mouth (a bit) and cover my bottom teeth with my tongue.  (Which is to say, my tongue was touching the back/inner part of my lower lip but not protruding out of my mouth.  But I didn't use the tongue in the first version.  I'll have to video other people signing these two versions and see if anyone else does that.
