The recent storms seem to have taken out a fair number of trees.
Lip Reading Mom rightly pointed out that the Art of ASL is not necessarily easy to understand without motion and expression. We might be able to get the expression on camera, but not the motion. Sooo…. I made a clip. I didn’t sign all of it because it is not for signers. It is for hearing people who want to get a feel for sign language. There are words and there is expression and there is motion. The main words to learn are: glasses, woman, who, hair, short, curly, and red. With those words you can ask the question: Who is that woman with curly red hair wearing glasses? You’ll note that ASL implies many of the words with action. ASL has a different syntax and grammar than English. It is not Signed Exact English. It is American Sign Language, which is a language distinct from English. In fact, we got our sign from France and share about 60% of the signs so if you learn ASL you can communicate with a signer in France fairly easily. British sign is quite different. Enjoy.
