New Material: Common Sentence Structures- Conditional Sentences: Suppose

  • The conditional clause
  • Always at the beginning of the sentence
  • Must clearly describe the condition
  • The outcome of the condition
  • Always in the second part of the sentence
  • Can be a question, statement, or command
  • Though there is flexibility in the ordering of conditional clauses in English, ASL always states the condition first followed by the outcome

New Material: Common Sentence Structures- Conditional Sentences: If

  • #IF is also used to construct a conditional clause

New Material: Common Sentence Structures- Negation

  • You can negate a thought by placing a negative sign before the verb or by first describing a topic and then signing the appropriate negative sign or giving a negative head shake.
  • A negative head shake can accompany any negative sign as well as the topic that is being negated.
  • It is good practice to use the negative head shake, but is not always necessary.
