In my opinion, the gentleman should be scowling to illustrate the difference between aggression and assertiveness therefore eliminating the burden of having to rely on context.  Thoughts?  Thank you

You’re right, facial expression would vary depending on the context. Even when using this sign for the same word, like AGGRESSIVE, your facial expression would vary depending on what you are talking about and the level of aggressiveness you are trying to convey.

When we initially started (over 10 years ago), we did not include facial expressions because of having multiple words connected to a single sign video. However, we have been reviewing signs in the dictionary and re-taping video for some signs to include facial expressions.

We appreciate your feedback and will discuss this particular video and words with a few of our advisory board members. If you check back in the next few weeks, you will likely see an updated video for this sign.
