What's this sign mean? It was English translated to SLOW or DELAY but I'm not sure ...


Recommended Posts

It’s definitely not a sign I’ve come across. It is not delay or slow as far as for ASL. If I had to guess I would say it is a sloppy sign for MOTHER or BEAUTIFUL. Depending on context though it could be a variation of a country sign or sloppy sign.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Zein, I'm hearing and are working with a few other people on a sci-fi action-platformer VR game that features a deaf main NPC that uses ASL to communicate with the player. The player can sometimes respond with single-word answers by picking up a word bubble that changes the hand shape and then making the corresponding gesture (e.g. pick up the fist for YES, then tilt the controller up and down) I am currently learning signing myself and I'm reaching out to communities to get feedback for authenticity and inclusion. I have some dialogue lines for the character but it would help a lot to get feedback, because I'm sure, a lot of lines / signs, are currently weird or out of place. I already got feedback from a discord community for the first line. I can share this here so you can get a better picture. Randy: Oh my God! There was an earthquake at the excavation site, and some sort of lightning storm. I'm not sure... are you okay? ASL: WOAH! Earthquake there mining place do-do. Loud lightning! Why no-idea. You alright you (eyebrows up)?   Here's me trying it myself but it will be hand-animated once it gets into the game.     Would anybody be intereseted/willing to give their input and feedback? I would share more of Randy's lines here to improve, fix, or correct them. It would be a great help!  Thank you for your time, Zein
    • Holy moly, I was not expecting this many people to respond to my post!😅 I would like to get to know you guys and see if we could possibly work something out. Maybe we could set up a time to be on?

    • Hi guys! Thanks for replying to my topic. I wouldn’t mind getting some practice. If you ever need a partner just tell me and I’ll see when I’m free. ^^
