Presentation Transcript

  1. BEFORE WE START… Open your book to page xv (the very first pages) and let’s take a look at “THINGS TO KNOW”…

  2. Sign Space and Dominance The ASL Sign Space is approximately from waist to the top of the head. Dominance – Which Hand Do You Use. Use the hand you write with in a one-handed sign. This is your dominant hand. Ambidextrous? Choose one hand and stick with it.

  3. FACIAL EXPRESSION More important than anything else in sign language is facial expression. Without facial expression, your “voice” is M-O-N-O-T-O-N-E Signers need to see your facial expression to know if you’re asking a question or making a statement. Hearing people might feel embarrassed at first. Don’t! You’re safe in here. No laughing at others allowed! Go ahead! Leave your inhibitions outside the door.

  4. Precision Is Important During class, watch me carefully! If you do not get the sign correctly, you could be signing something else entirely. WATCH: SUMMER UGLY DRY

  5. Precision and the Five Parameters Signs have five parts: Handshape I……………………...vs. …………….MY Palm Orientation NAME ……................vs. …………….CHAIR Location MOTHER …………....vs. ……………FATHER Movement SNOW……………..…vs. ……………RAIN Non-Manual Signals (facial expression) I UNDERSTAND ……vs. …………...I DON’T UNDERSTAND

  6. IS ASL ENGLISH??? NO WAY! ASL has a completely different grammatical structure. For example: there is no word “BE” (or AM, ARE, IS) in ASL. ASL is NOT hand signals in English word order.

  7. EYE CONTACT This is one of the most important parts of ASL. You should watch and maintain eye contact. That means you look at the EYES more than the hands. Trust me and trust yourself. You can see the hands while you look at the eyes. In Deaf Culture (the Deaf World) looking away is rude. Watch me! Here’s how you sign EYE CONTACT

  8. Question Sets Every unit we study, you will receive a question set. You can read ahead and fill out all the answers.

  25. Why do I point Twice?? Pg. 9 • Pointing back to yourself or the person you’re talking about shows completion of train of thought. This allows somebody else to begin signing without interrupting you. • Using Deixis at the end of a sentence is called closing signal. • Remember to use a closing signal when: • Making a statement or comment about yourself or somebody else. • Asking a question

  26. Eyes on ASL #2 pg. 9 • Always use a closing signal to complete a signed sentence. • An ASL sentence lacking a closing signal is incomplete. • What is a closing signal? • Using a Deixis at the end of the sentence.
