Numbers - Billion

  • The sign for billion is fingerspelled.
  • Another variation for signing billion is made by having the fingertips of the bent-B handshape come down in the palm of the opposite hand three times (as in one thousand thousand thousand).
  • To sign 1,000,000,000 - sign the number 1 and then BILLION. Use this same pattern to sign other billion numbers.
  • Palm Orientation: Your palm should always face forward when fingerspelling B-I-L-L-I-O-N. When signing the second variation of BILLION, your palm should always face forward when signing the first digit and then the palm faces down when making the sign for BILLION.
