Role Shifting and Storytelling In ASL.


Recommended Posts

Here's one of my favorite stories to tell. Notice the role shifts and how aware I keep things at. Very important! Story: "I'm going to tell you a story. So a wood cutter goes to the forest looking for wood, well, trees to cut wood for winter. So he/she goes walking, stops, and sees a nice tree. So he/she gets the ax and starts swinging, hitting it, and says 'TIMBERRR' the tree falls. He/she watches/examines it and says 'nice', and he/she goes on and continues walking, and stops and sees a big tree! He needs this tree :) So he gets his ax and starts cutting away. He/she says 'TIMBERRR' but nothing, the tree still stood. 'Hmm weird' thought the wood cutter. Again, 'TIMBERRR'. The tree wouldn't budge, nothing. So he/she searches online locates a tree expert and gives the expert a call. The tree expert answers 'Hi, need help?' Wood cutter replies 'Yes, I have a problem. There's this tree that wont fall.' Expert then says 'Oh really? Well that's weird. Let me go take a look.' 'Okay, see you later". Here comes the tree expert. He comes and sees the tree. 'Hmm, yes I see. I know. That tree is deaf", the wood cutter confused 'What??? The tree is deaf?' 'Yes, you need to finger-spell' 'Oh, okay..." so the wood cutter starts to sign at the tree 'T-I-M-B-E-R' and it falls!!! :) Finished (The end)".

I laughed out loud and understood the story perfectly! Thanks for signing so clearly! A new spin on "if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one to hear it, does it make a sound?" If a tree is dead and can't hear itself, does it really fall? 😂

    • The cornerstone of a Muslim's beliefs and practices is the Shahada, the First Pillar of Islam. The Shahada, which declares, "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger," embodies the central notion of the unity of deity and Muhammad's prophetic status. Adhering to the teachings of Islam and living by its tenets is symbolized by accepting the Shahada First Pillar of Islam. This confession of faith is significant and transforming because it is a must for everyone wishing to convert t
    • I’ve always loved having options to switch up my home’s look, and the slipcovers for couches from Menotti gave me just that. They fit perfectly and are incredibly easy to change out when I want a new colour or pattern. It’s like having several couches in one! These covers are a smart choice if you like refreshing your decor often.
