Give

Give (I'm giving to you) is signed by holding your thumb to all your fingers together on your dominant hand, and moving your hand away from your body. The motion looks like you are giving the listener something. Some people also sign give with both their hands moving simultaneously in the same direction.

By changing the direction of the motion you can indicate, "Give to me," or, "He is giving to her."
