Hello Dr. Vicars,
Is there a sign for "recipe"? I cannot find the sign and many
Youtube videos show people fingerspelling it.
Thank you for your time,
ASL I Student
In general the concept of "recipe" is indeed fingerspelled. I
encourage you to practice spelling "recipe" over and over again
until you can spell it fast enough that you are no longer concerned
about finding a "sign" for it and are instead perfectly comfortable
spelling it just as you see Deaf people do.
I will however mention a couple of signs related to the concept of
"recipe" that you may find helpful.
CARD-(square or rectangle)
Draw a rectangle in the air with your index fingers and thumbs.
INSTRUCTIONS / describe /
Hold "F" hands out in front of you and slide one forward while you
slide the other backward. Then alternate the movement.
