  1. Asking questions WH- questionsYes-No questions

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Non-manual signals (NMS) are essential when asking questions in ASL but not all questions are signed the same way! • Two major question forms in ASL are: • WH – QUESTIONS • YES – NO QUESTIONS

  5. WH - QUESTIONS • Who? How-many? • What? How-much? • When? What-time? • Where? How-old? • Why? What’s-up? • How? • Which?

  6. WH - QUESTIONS • Wh-questions in ASL MUST be accompanied by the following non-manual signals: • - Eyebrows lowered • - Eyes narrowed • - Head tilt • **Last sign in question is held, waiting for response.

  7. WH- QUESTIONS • In ASL, the WH-question is often located at the END of the sentence. • YOUR ASL TEACHERWHO?(English: Who is your ASL teacher?) • SCHOOL YOU GOWHERE?(English: Where do you go to school?)

  8. YOUR NAMEWHAT?(English: What is your name?) • CLASS BEGINWHAT-TIME?(English: What time does the class begin?) • BATHROOM WHERE? • (English: Where’s the bathroom?)

  9. YES-NO QUESTIONS • Yes-No questions in ASL are questions that when asked, are responded to by either a “yes” or a “no” answer. • Examples: “Are you a student?” “Yes” “Do you have your paper?” “No” “Have you finished eating?” “Yes”

  10. Yes-No Questions in ASL require these non-manual signals: • Eyebrows raised • Head tilt • Eye contact made with the person being asked the question • **The last sign in the question is held, waiting for a response.
