  1. One ASL speaker (who learned ASL as an adult) told me this (In Conclusive Evidence) was wrong: "Carly thinks that is a particularly wussy thing to do. The ASL sign for “chicken” is formed by making a beak shape with your fingers and pecking it down onto the other hand." The woman said that that sign wouldn't be used to call someone chicken (as in "scared"). So, I'll be interested in your take.
  2. That's great news. Thanks, Jo! I'd like to give you (and others who are reading this) a free copy of the first book in the series. Click here. Thanks again, Al
  3. Hi, I'm a novelist, and in one of my series, I have a deaf character. Here are a few sentences from my latest book. Could someone confirm that I am describing this ASL correctly? Carly’s eyes also filled with tears, something that rarely happens. One spilled down her cheek. “I’m okay with those photos, but what about you, bro?” I pointed to my chest and slid my hand down, then put the four fingers of my right hand against my chin and pulled them away into the palm of my left: I’m good. My concern is that that's really in PSE (Pidgin Signed English) rather than ASL. That is, with ASL syntax, he would sign "Good I am." What do you think? Many thanks! Al
