Simple Yes/No Questions

[youtube https://youtu.be/ioyrnjIjsmc]
  • Three to five words (keep it simple-if you need more than five it’s not a simple sentence and you can’t use this structure).
  • No specific order unless there is an actor and a receiver (if there is someone or something doing an action and someone or something being acted upon, you will sign the actor, the verb (action), then the receiver.
  • Examples:
    • Do you love coffee?
      • YOU LOVE COFFEE?
    • Is Dr. Pepper your favorite drink?
      • YOUR FAVORITE DRINK D-R P-E-P-P-E-R?
    • Are you going to the store?
      • YOU GO-TO STORE?
  • Notice that the ASL gloss is all capitalized (to represent signs), has punctuation (a question mark) at the end, has dashes between the letters that are fingerspelled, and has a dash between the two words used in English to represent one sign in ASL.
  • The English is written with only the first letter capitalized and there is punctuation (a question mark) at the end.
