Signs for TO

Before you check what the sign is for "to", be aware of how it's used, especially if you're new to ASL (perhaps most likely if you look up a word "to"),

Yes, there is a sign for "to" in its standalone, but it's rarely used in phrases, sentences, and conversations.

ASL is its own language with its own vocabulary, grammar, determiners, structure, etc., just like any languages whether signed or spoken.

The usage of "to" will end up often redundant in sentences and ungrammatically sound. Learn grammar as much as you learn vocabulary.

The sign "to" is rarely used in ASL as most verbs and phrases already have "to" in it when producing sentences. For example, glossing terms show GO-to, WANT-to, etc.
