  • 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.

    • I sign because my mother taught me when i was very young i fell in love with the language i slowly learned but when i was diagnosed with mild bilateral hearing loss in grade 4 i felt it was necessary to learn more. As i got older i fell in love with the language again but sadly have no one to sign to which has resulted in me not really knowing how to read the language.
    • Hi My name is Olivia and I am 16. I am looking for someone to sign with as no one knows sign around me.
    • A lovely suprise for this couple when they realised that the stewardess on their Philippine Airlines flight could sign! Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of this kind of inclusion everywhere. Great customer service.
