The sign for “Hope”

Recommended Posts

Transcript: So, in the past I’ve seen a couple different versions of the sign HOPE.  (I show both) I use the first one, but I’ve been noticing more and more people using the second variation.  So now I’m curious, is the difference regional? Or a definition difference?  Or maybe the second is just a new version?  I dont know but let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is correct, but I use the first version for the noun (ex. there's hope for the future) and the second version for the verb (ex. I hope you have a good day).

I use the first version.  The second version looks like it might actually come from hearing people.  It's a thing we do when we're hoping for something.  Usually accompanied with someone saying something like, "Fingers crossed, I hope I get that job."

    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
    • Hello, I am Amy.
    • I like your idea! I'll try to be there.
    • I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST.   My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?
