Hey everyone, I work at a coffee shop, and with words I'd find most useful this is one of them. I was wondering if there were words for "latte" or "espresso." Since the dictionary doesn't have it I assume I would fingerspell it. Any direction would help, thanks!

Hello,

Good question! No, there aren’t any universally accepted signs for those words. Similarly, there is a sign for “tree” in ASL but you have to fingerspell each kind (pine, oak, sycamore etc). I am a huge fan of smooth clear fingerspelling. When in doubt...fingerspell. 

Thanks for taking the time to ask!
