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."
