When sign language is new and exciting because people are first learning it, they may develop a "favorite sign." Some people favor a particular sign because of its coolness, or its movement, or its purpose.
About.com visitors were asked what their favorite sign was in the blog post, "Do You Have a Favorite Sign?" Several people responded, citing their favorite signs and reasons for these signs being their favorites.
"Love the 'What's up' greeting sign and 'Don't know' sign, both of which I use with regularity because I love running into people I can be comfortable enough to use a 'slang' sign with."
"My favorite sign is 'bright,' especially when it is done in song. The movement is so expansive and really depicts that the area is filled with brightness."
"I love the sign for 'remember.' I use it a lot with my daughter. She loves it."
"I’ve just passed level 2 and my absolute favorite signs are 'fantastic' and 'innocent.' My tutor laughs every time I sign it as I have a smirk on my face."
Moving Beyond Favorite Signs
Of course, to communicate in sign language, you need to know more than just a handful of signs. Continue your sign language education through classes, books, online video, or DVDs.
