373Higgins (1923) MUCHGREATGREAT: Both hands palm towards palm, drawn apart to the sides to show greatness. (Grievous) (Tenseness, slowness and larger motion indicate greater degree of magnitude or seriousness, and if at the end of the sign the hands are shaken as if unable to reach or measure the greatness the idea of infinity is indicated.)68hsldb.georgetown.edu/books/book-window.php?id=373&refid=higgins1923
734Long (1918) MUCHMUCHMUCH: Hold the "5" hands so their palms are toward each other, and draw them apart. It is usual to draw the left hand a little downward toward the left while the right hand is drawn upward toward the right. The extent to which they are drawn apart indicates the quantity.
