Abstract Criteria sre given for the observability of the signs of coupling constants appearing in elementary particle interactions. The results are applied to various strong interaction Lagrangians. For a certnin meson-baryon interaction with eight coupling constants, it is shown that only four (independent) relative signs are observable. The signs of the coupling constants in certain meson-meson interactions are discussed briefly. Some difficulties in measuring the observable signs are mentioned. (auth)
