ASL 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 ASL signs.
American Sign Language (ASL) uses the one-handed alphabet however some other sign languages use the two-handed alphabet.
