In Auslan, to talk about the days of the week and the months of the year, we fingerspell abbreviations for the words. While most of them are obvious, there are still correct and incorrect ways to spell them. For example, we spell FR for Friday, not FRI. Sunday has its own sign, and Thursday, strangely, can be signed with the middle finger representing the T, rather than the pointer finger that is usually used. If you use the pointer finger, though, it’s still correct.
Watch the video to learn the correct ways to show months and days of the week.
