MASTER ASL! IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW….


GLOSSING pgs. 129 – 130 in your workbook

  • Developed by ASL teachers for HEARING students.

  • Deaf people do NOT write in GLOSS.

  • Glossing is a system of using one language to write another.


GLOSSINGpgs. 129 – 130 in your workbook

  • Every sign has one gloss.

  • Some ASL signs need 2 or more English words to convey meaning.

    Ex: WHAT’S-UP = 1 sign

  • Glossing is labeling. Label ONLY what is signed. Don’t add ENGLISH words that are not signed. Is, are, am….


GLOSSING pgs. 129 – 130 in your workbook

  • The gloss for each sign is in the index of your workbook.

  • When writing in GLOSS you must print in CAPITAL LETTERS.


EYE CONTACT

  • Deaf Culture: No eye contact = rude.

  • When signing or watching someone sign always look them in the eye.

  • No eye contact = not paying attention, day dreaming, not interested.


THE SIGN SPACE

  • Sign Space = where most signs are made during normal conversation.

  • Outside sign space is uncomfortable on your hands, wrists and shoulders

  • Most signs  centered to the right or left of your middle torso.


WHICH HAND DO I USE?

  • Sign with the hand you write.

  • The hand you sign with most often is the DOMINANT HAND.

  • The other hand is the

    NON-DOMINANT HAND.


Facial Expressions

  • Monotone Voice = boring.

  • Signing without facial expressions = boring.

  • Tone of voice, emotion and intent must be made visual through facial expressions.

  • Facial expressions show emotion, meaning and ASL grammar.


Precision is Important

  • Signing Clearly same as Speaking Clearly

  • Sloppy, uncertain signing same as mumbling

  • Location changes meaning : SUMMER, TO-BE-UGLY, DRY

  • ASL makes visual sense.


ASL IS NOT ENGLISH

  • Think in ASL don’t match ASL signs to English words.

  • If you “mouth” words or talk silently while signing that is not ASL.

  • Deaf people sometimes sign and mouth English words at the same time if they are speaking with hearing people not fluent in ASL.


ASL IS NOT ENGLISH

  • ASL is the only real sign language in America.

  • Not SEE, PSE

  • If you don’t use ASL syntax (order of words in sentences) you are not signing in ASL.


FINGERSPELLING

  • FS not a subsitute for signs you don’t know.

  • Specific purposes-specific signing space

  • Names, places, specific words there are not signs for (i.e., broccoli)


FIVE PARAMETERS OF ASL

  • ASL signs can be broken down into 5 separate features.

  • Correct sign = all 5 parameters are correct

  • Handshape, Palm Orientation, Location, Movement, NMS-facial expressions


HANDSHAPE, PALM ORIENTATION

  • Handshape difference like ME and MY, or 1/D, D/F, E/O.

  • Palm Orientation-unsure if sign faces up, down, left or right.

  • Nervous signing, or signing without practice = PO mistakes.

  • Ex: TABLE OVER-THERE


LOCATION

  • Most signs  In front of your body-comfortable

  • If arms feel awkward = wrong location

  • Some signs start close to body and move away or vice versa

  • Ex: SEE-YOU TOMORROW, GIVE-ME YOUR BOOK


MOVEMENT

  • Movement affects meaning.

  • Hands and arms feel awkward or constricted? Check sign’s movement.

  • EX: I’M HAPPY, I’M ENJOYING


NON-MANUAL SIGNALS/ FACIAL EXPRESSIONS

  • NMS alter meaning.

  • Facial expressions, head nods/shakes, eyebrows, nose, eyes and lips carry meaning.

  • EX: I’M LATE, I HAVEN’T
