Signing Space

Signing space is the area in front of your body. It is the space you use to sign.

It is the distance your arms can reach... in front, below and above you. Signing space travels with you wherever you go.

Think of your signing space like a room. It has a front and back wall and a floor and ceiling.

Arrows in SignWriting "relate" to this imaginary signing space.
