A poster showing how to represent the letters of the alphabet when fingerspelling a word in Auslan.
Display this poster in your classroom as a reminder of how to represent the letters of the alphabet when fingerspelling nouns and other words in Auslan (Australian Sign Language).
Please note: The viewpoint shown on this poster is from the signer’s perspective looking directly at their hands. The view of the signer and the view of the reciprocant will differ. The images shown aim to give a broad understanding of the handshapes required to communicate letters of the alphabet. Some signs may differ according to area or region. We encourage you to cross-reference using resources within your local community.
