  • AUSLAN Fingerspelling Alphabet

    Fingerspelling is a way of spelling words using hand movements. The fingerspelling manual alphabet is used in sign language to spell out names of people and places for which there is not a sign. Fingerspelling can also be used to spell words for signs that the signer does not know the sign for, or to clarify a sign that is not known by the person reading the signer. Fingerspelling signs are often also incorporated into other AUSLAN signs.

    Australian Sign Language (AUSLAN) uses the two-handed alphabet however some other sign languages use the one-handed alphabet.

    • Hello, I'm fairly new to Auslan myself, but I do have a PhD in English, and my view is that 'signing' is the correct verb. The context in which you use the word should ensure it  would be easily distinguished from 'signing' with a pen.
