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.

    • Hello, I am a senior in high school,  learning ASL. I was talking to my teacher, when she mentioned that you can only get your name in ASL with someone deaf giving it to you. Is this true? 
    • Hi Lori -  Let's start with the easy question - what time zone are you in?
    • Hi Katelyn, If our schedules can match up, I'd be happy to practice with you. I have some experience with ASL, but it's old and dusty, and I was never fluent. I'm new to Chat groups, so I'm not really sure how they work...Let me know if you have specific times that you'd like to practice. Lori
    • Hi there! I am studying ASL at Gallaudet University, but my biggest problem is I lack confidence when I sign. I am really looking for someone who will have patience to practice with me. Thanks! Katelyn
