  1. True. Finger spelling is always an option. Or if you are in a conversation with someone deaf or someone who studies ASL, can always ask if your meaning is clear. it never hurts to double check.
  2. top pic: hard to tell because of the lack of context but it looks like she might be signing number 2 and 0 or letter v and o bottom pic: she is signing "INTERPRET" (i think so ) context of a sentence is important because many signs are identical hope this helps
  3. typically there are many signs that are the same. the difference is in the context of the sentence and how you use/manipulate the sign DAWN and SUNRISE. obviously with english the words are completely different but imply the general same concept. Example using both the sign dawn and sunrise. If this is not clear you can always sign the sign and then finger spell out the word you meant. I wake up when? DAWN vs this morning SUNRISE did you see? Beautiful! notice the difference in the context between both sentences? Hope this helps.

  12. hello @beautyoutofashes54 i am a ASL student finishing my second year of ASL. Typically, when you sign/are signing there isn't really a "break" because if you sign fluently it simply flows, unless the person is signing slower or is a beginner, then yes there are many pauses and breaks. Remember that the ASL sentence structure usually follows: Time + Subject + Verb + Object so as an example in English it could go something like: I went to Ireland last year and as for ASL it would look something like this: Last year (time) I ( subject) went to (me + go finish verb) Ireland (object)

  17. So, as an example, lets say we were talking about a website and I want to know the name of the website. In context, it would be appropriate to use the sign similar in your video. Because the sign used in your video can also be used to express, "it is called..." because i want to know the name of the website and you sign "name you" the translation can be expressed as such. So if we were talking about a person, and you ask for their name it would be the normal sign for name which is "U" handshape and are crossed like an x over one another tapped twice with the corresponding facial expressions. I hope this helps!
  18. hi McKenna, for this sign, it is different from, "my name is" as the signs and movements are different from "Name You" which is what is signed in the video. However there is little context for the given video so it is hard to determine the meaning. For instance when you ask for someone's name, normally you would furrow your eyebrows as if you are asking them a question and tap four fingers twice for the sign "name" maybe even tilt your head slightly as indicating the question. This sign"Name You" entitles a different meaning. I hope this helps!
