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.

    • Hey guys check out my YouTube channel where I create multiple videos about signing! Please give tips and comments about what you guys think; here is a story of mine about using basic ASL at work!
    • Hi. I am Cecily. My sign name  is C initial writer ( like writer). I  have being learning ASL for um, four years. I have taken ASL 1, 2, 3 and fingerspelling. I don't have a class now. I  want to  practice signing with different people. That's why I signed up here.
    • Hi Veronica.  Welcome.  What resources are you using to learn right now?  There are a ton available.  I would imagine that LV has a decent amount of classes you could attend.
    • Hello, Community! I'm excited to be on board in this space and looking forward to what I hope will be lots of growing and learning to enhance my ability to communicate with Deaf community. I'm a 39yo, Queer, Latinx based mostly out of Las Vegas but travel all across the country a lot for work. I recently met someone that I very much want to develop a relationship with and is Deaf. I will have a chance to be with her again at the end of August and am hopeful to be able to carry on at least a 30 minute, enjoyable (to her) visit with her and without an interpreter by then. Thank yall very much for this practice space. In Solidarity, -Veronica
