How to tell cardinal numbers in millions and billions in ASL

This lesson will show you how to tell cardinal numbers between millions and billions in ASL (American Sign Language).

If you have forgotten some numbers from one to 100 in ASL 101, you can go back and review the numbers from 1 through 1000.

one-hundred, hundred.

thousand, one-thousand.

100,000; one hundred thousand.


Signers also use the fingerspelled loan glossed as #million in some contexts.

one billion.

This is the concept. But, often signers use the fingerspelled loan glossed as #billion in some contexts.
