Korean Manual Alphabet

The Korean manual alphabet is used by the Deaf in South Korea who speak Korean Sign Language. It is a one-handed alphabet that mimics the shapes of the letters in hangul, and is used when signing Korean as well as being integrated into KSL.


The only letter with motion as a component is ssang siot (?), which starts as two crossed fingers pointing down and then snaps open.
