American Sign Language: "best"
"BEST" and "BETTER" are derivatives of "GOOD."
Memory Aid: An interesting way to think of "BETTER" is as a combination of "GOOD + ER," and "BEST" as a combination of "GOOD + EST."
GOOD: (For more info, check out the "GOOD" page.)
The sign for better comes out to the right a bit.
Notice that the sign for BEST makes a much bigger movement. It actually dips down a bit for emphasis prior to moving "way up." The more you exaggerate this sign, the more your are emphasizing how much better something is than the others.
