American Sign Language: "room"


The sign for "room" is the same as the sign for "box." Use flat hands to show the sides and then bent hands to show the front and back of the room or box.

ROOM (or "box")

Note: The sign ROOM is based on the concept of "a box." Thus this sign can be interpreted as either "room" or "box" depending on context to make your meaning clear. 

There is also an initialized form of the sign ROOM that uses "R" handshapes, it is
not recommended.  Most of the time there is no need to initialize the the sign with "R" hands. For example, see BEDROOM.
