Classifiers

American Sign Language III

descriptive classifiers
Descriptive Classifiers
  • Used when describing the physical characteristics of nouns
example4
Example:

CL:55(bent) - sphere

example6
Example:

CL:LL(bent) – thin circular object

example8
Example:

CL:CC SS – narrowing object

example10
Example:

CL:CC – large tube object

example12
Example:

CL:55(closed) - box

descriptive classifiers13
Descriptive Classifiers
  • Used when describing the physical characteristics of nouns
  • These same classifiers can be used to describe a variety of objects

  • Can you think of any?

Descriptive Classifiers
  • Used when describing the physical characteristics of nouns
  • These same classifiers can be used to describe a variety of objects
  • To distinguish between two objects or emphasize an unusual size use non-manual mouth morphemes
example17
Example:

Mouth “oo”: small

example19
Example:

Mouth “mm”: standard size

example21
Example:

Mouth “cha”: big

Descriptive Classifiers
  • Used when describing the physical characteristics of nouns
  • These same classifiers can be used to describe a variety of objects
  • To distinguish between two objects or emphasize an unusual size use non-manual mouth morphemes
  • Also the handshape of the CL changes with size
descriptive classifiers23
Descriptive Classifiers
  • Descriptive classifiers are also used to describe attachments and designs of objects.

Descriptive Classifiers
  • Descriptive classifiers are also used to describe attachments and designs of objects.
  • Describing these depends on whether they are symmetrical or asymmetrical.

Descriptive Classifiers
  • Descriptive classifiers are also used to describe attachments and designs of objects.
  • Describing these depends on whether they are symmetrical or asymmetrical.
    • Symmetrical means when something is cut in half, both sides are mirror images.

Descriptive Classifiers
  • Descriptive classifiers are also used to describe attachments and designs of objects.
  • Describing these depends on whether they are symmetrical or asymmetrical.
    • Symmetrical means when something is cut in half, both sides are mirror images.
    • Asymmetrical means not symmetrical
symmetrical objects
Symmetrical Objects
  • Use the same handshape for both hands to describe the basic shape of the object.
symmetrical example29
Symmetrical Example:

CL:FF- circular object CL: SS – rolling pin

symmetrical example31
Symmetrical Example:

CL: 55(closed) - bowl

asymmetrical objects
Asymmetrical Objects
  • Use the same handshape for both hands to describe the basic shape of the object.
asymmetrical objects35
Asymmetrical Objects
  • Use the same handshape for both hands to describe the basic shape of the object.
  • Then note the objects differences by maintaining one handshape that is the same, and altering your dominant handshape.
asymmetrical example37
Asymmetrical Example:

CL: FF – cylinder object CL:CS – turning crank

asymmetrical example39
Asymmetrical Example:

CL:55(closed) – cupped object CL:CG - handle

asymmetrical example41
Asymmetrical Example:

CL: 55(closed) – bowl CL:5(closed)4 – whisk

slide42
So what’s the difference between symmetrical objects and asymmetrical objects when using classifiers?
instrument classifiers44
Instrument Classifiers
  • Instrument classifiers describe things based on how they are handled or how they work, not how they appear
example46
Example:

CL:A – pulling a pull-cord

example48
Example:

CL:SS – opening door

example50
Example:

CL:A – turn on/off

the science lab
The Science Lab
  • We will watch a video of Freda and Ben.
  • Watch closely how Freda compares sizes to clarify which object she means.
  • Also watch how her weak (non-dominant) hand is a reference point.

The Science Lab
  • We will watch a video of Freda and Ben.
  • Watch closely how Freda compares sizes to clarify which object she means.
  • Also watch how her weak (non-dominant) hand is a reference point.
  • Now the clips will appear in slow motion.
  • The signer will maintain the basic shape with her weak hand while describing with her dominant hand.
