For short POSITIVE PHRASES, the verb can be placed before or after the object, both grammar patterns are ASL basics. The proper facial expression as you sign the verb (or at the end of the phrase) is a head nod or your expression can remain neutral. These phrases are used to state information, usually ending with a period in written English.
For short NEGATIVE PHRASES, the verb can be placed before or after the object. Negative phrases express a negation. The proper facial expression as you sign the negative is a headshake. Combined with a negative, these phrases are used to state information, usually ending with a period in written English.
In these exercises, the ASL student will study several examples of short phrases and then be asked to gloss English phrases into the short ASL phrase pattern. Lessons and exercises can be divided into several days. Two BONUS reviews also provided along with answer keys.
This is a great resource for your ASL classroom that can be used for all levels of sign language and Deaf culture learning!
