Need help with a class translation

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

Im taking an ASL class at school and im having trouble translating one of the signs.  Its the last sign on question 2.  I believe He says my Name is Bev, then creates a repeating 20 NUM motion with both hands.  Ive tried finding it in reverse dictionaries but i think im missing something.  Any help would be awesome:)

Cheers,

It's something like "what to do" or "what is she doing" or "what's going on" but does not mean, "what's happening?"  I can't see the gentleman's face but if he is squinting his eyes then it's like a wh kind of question.   The motion you are referring to is uniquely ASL and not an exact translation of English words.  That's my two cents on the question.

    • That is on, if you choose to earn from the I internet.  I am doing the same since there aren't any deaf people besides me anywhere near me so I stick to learning the ameri an sign language since from what I see is used mostly here, I think we can make a lot of progress practicing together. I'm on the beginners level still, I'm taking free online classes too and those help a lot. Would u like to practice with me?
    • if you dont use it, you lose it right? hope i can get to the level where we can help each other through practice. i live in a different country, so ASL is used here ALTHOUGH some deaf people do study it so that can communicate on a global level. for now, i am confined to the internet to learn.
