Asking questions

WH- questionsYes-No questions

asl and facial grammar
ASL and Facial grammar
  • In conversation, English speakers listen to the tone and rise and fall of your voice (intonation). These variations add meaning to the message.
  • InASL, these variations are shown by facial and body expression. The raised eyebrow, the tilted head, shape of the mouth, etc. shape the meaning of what the signer is saying.
non manual signals
Non-manual signals
  • These variations in ASL are called:
  • a) non-manual signals or NMS
  • b) Non manual grammatical signals or NMGS (another name).
  • Mastery of ASL cannot occur without mastery of facial grammar!
