  1. hello. i am of hearing and studying ASL and in my experience, a name sign is given, from someone who is Deaf and uses ASL to a Hearing person if the person who is Deaf (and or a group/the community) acknowledges that hearing person. the Deaf tend to associate a name sign to the person with something they know that person frequents, likes doing, has a certain hobby, just something to identify by. 2 types of name signs are: 1) arbitrary- implies the name sign has no specific meaning ex... someone named (called) CJ. a Deaf person could possibly give the arbitrary sign name to that person and fingerspell C-J and move it somewhere around the body. 2) descriptive- implies the name sign is made referring to a person's appearance or characteristics.

  10. hello everyone! my name is cody and i am about a year into starting ASL. Currently in ASL 2 with half my semester left and then continuing to 3. I hope to have my AA in sign by the end of next year and will be looking to transfer into a university for American Sign Language and Deaf Studies with the hopes of becoming an interpreter in the future! I am also new to this forum and have only recently began branching out to online platforms but given the current state of everything.. i understand. ASL has become a passion of mine and i have been studying vigorously to better my sign but practicing by myself and alone isn't the same as having another person to sign with. Especially with this language i am seeing more and more depth with conversations with both Deaf people and Hearing, and it has made me observe my everyday life in a different perspective. Feel free to message me if you would like to sign or even ask me questions i could possibly answer to the best of my knowledge.
