This is how you sign Early in American Sign Language.


To sign "early" in American Sign Language (ASL), imagine the sun's rays coming over the horizon early in the morning. Use your right hand, forming a flat hand or a fist, to slide over the back of your left hand. This motion symbolizes the idea of something happening at the beginning or early stages. Remember to slide the middle finger smoothly over the back of the non-dominant hand, rather than flicking it.
