For SHORT YES/NO QUESTIONS, raise the eyebrows, head tilted slightly, and hold the question-sign longer than the others while maintaining eye contact. The phrase is three signs or less and the order of the signs varies.

For longer yes/no questions, follow a topic/question format while using the same nonmanual signals as stated above. Typically, these longer phrases are four signs or more in length.

In this lesson and exercises, ASL students will study several examples of yes/no questions and then be asked to translate English phrases into the proper ASL grammar pattern. Lessons and exercises can be divided into several days. Two 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!
