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,  My name is Nicki [ sign name]. I grew up signing PSE. I am HOH and raised in hearing community. My grandmother and her mother were deaf , but learned PSE and lip reading ( different times/ different culture). Working on my ASL syntax. My receptive is still very english,so sometimes I miss details when in conversation using fast ASL grammar. I am hoping to find practice partners.
