This is how you sign West in American Sign Language.

Description

This is how you sign the word “West” in ASL. The sign for "west" involves moving a "W" shape to the left. The pinky finger should curve in, and the thumb rests on the nail of the pinky finger, forming a distinctive "W" shape and then glide to left. Keep in mind the directional aspect – considering a map, west is on the left side, so when signing WEST, direct the movement toward your left.
