Hand Part Module¶
This module is used to code the hand part involved in approaching or contacting another part of the body or the opposite hand. As many instances of this module as necessary can be called for any given sign coding. For more discussion on the use of modules in SLP-AA to encode information about signs, see Modularity.
Select the hand(s) involved in this instance of the module.
Selecting both hands
All of the specifications in this module will apply to the indicated hand(s), so selecting Both hands means that the applicable part of each hand equally approaches or contacts the same part of the other hand. If one hand is involved in approaching or contacting a different part of the opposite hand, choose only the applicable hand that is going to be described in this instance of the module as the one that is doing the approaching or contacting (that is, choose the hand that is not currently acting as a location for the other hand).
