Accessing and Analyzing Information 7. Curiosity and Imagination ASL stands for American Sign Language. It is an actual language, so please be respectful as such! o Use when appropriate. o Most use it without voicing, however, due to many situations, mouthing and voicing are fine. (Most students are not native signers!) Facial expression is crucial to meaning! You are increasing immediacy in language-but it can only increase when you increase your knowledge! Dialects abound (it s not a written language), so be open! Today s signs are most interjections and don t constitute depth but a beginning! We re focusing on signs the manual alphabet and numbers are very, very easy to come by. However, I ll include them here for reference, should you need a print copy. Online: o (still photos) o (flash drive, however, so can t always work on ipads) o A Basic Course textbook o Fantastic resource about sentences in ASL Signs For Me o Great for younger signers! Memory aid: Think of the fist hand as representing your head. When you raise and lower your fist, bending at the wrist it represents your head nodding yes. The sign NO can use either a polite double motion or a more firm or definite single motion. It is also directional in nature-- meaning, if I hold my hand off to my right and I point the palm toward myself while doing the sign, it can mean He told me no. The sign for please is made by placing your flat right hand over the center of your chest. Move your hand in a clockwise motion (from the observer's point of view, use a circular motion towards your left, down, right, and back up) a few times. The sign for thank you is made by starting with the fingers of your dominant hand near your lips. Your hand should be a flat hand. Move your hand forward and a bit down in the direction of the person you are thanking. Smile (so they'll know you mean it). The sign for bathroom is made by forming the right hand into the letter t. The palm side is facing away from you. Shake your hand side to side a couple times. Some people use a twisting movement instead of the side to side shake. Either is fine. The sign for finish is made by placing both of your open hands in front of you. Each hand should face you, with your fingers pointing upward. Twist both hands quickly a couple times ending with the palms pointing (somewhat) forward. You can also do this sign with just a single twist which makes it seem more final. Indexing is when you point your index finger at a person who is or isn't in the signing area. Sometimes we call that present referent and/or absent referent. If the person is there, (present) you can just point at him to mean HE or SHE. You can point at an object to mean IT. If the person is not there, you can identify him by spelling his name (or some other method of identification--like a name sign, or maybe someone else has spelled his name, or he was sitting in a chair and then got up and left), then you can index him to a point in space. Now you have a referent for that person. Once you have set up a referent, you can refer back to that same point each time you want to talk about that person. To establish that something belongs to someone, you can aim the flat of your palm at the person or thing that is doing the possessing 2 kinds: Formal Interjection The general sign for excuse is made by extending your left hand, palm up. Brush your right bent-hand fingertips across the left palm starting with the pinky on your right hand. Bend the large knuckles of the right hand slightly. Keep the other knuckles straight. Have you thought about a sign you d like to use? The sign for stop is made by extending your left hand, palm upward. Sharply bring your open right hand down to your left palm at a right angle. The sign come uses a single quick movement: Make the sign for good by placing the fingers of your right hand against your lips. Move your right hand into the palm of your left hand. Both hands should be facing upward. Make the sign for bad by placing the fingers of your right hand against your lips. Move your hand down and away. End with your palm facing downward. The sign for read uses the tips of your index and middle fingers as if they were eyeballs. The non-dominant flat hand functions as the page from which you are reading. Draw the number 8 from the heart outwards. The sign for nice or clean is made by placing your left hand in front of you, palm up and moving the flat palm of your right hand across your left hand. (If you are right handed). To sign slow, slide the dominant hand (right hand if you are right handed) up the non-dominant forearm a short distance--starting at the back of the base (left) hand. You only need to go a few inches. Usage note: If you do this sign very fast it means very slow. If you start the sign and hold it in place for a moment, then roll your eyes and then finish it quickly it means very, very slow. The letter H, shaken up and down. Use a bent right and move it into the flat palm of the left. What is your name? Are you okay? Ready for? Where do you live? Where is it? Are you sick? Are you hurt?
