Can hard of hearing people give sign names?

Recommended Posts

I have been speaking asl for the past 3 years, and I’m unsure as to a few sign name rules. I’ve been hard of hearing my whole life, and so has my father. I’m not deaf, but I’m also not hearing. So can I give sign names to my hearing friends? I respect lots of them and how they’ve learned asl to help me, but I don’t want to disrespect deaf culture at all. Please help, thank you!

    • im learning to interpret a song by watching a video of a girl interpreting it. The girl used the sign in the video below, but I had previously been using the double x handshape and then the sign for in, which one is correct?  
    • So ive been learning asl through videos of songs interpreted because thats been the best way for me to remeber signs, but i recently saw a sign that i couldnt figure out what it meant. can yall please help? The timing the sign was done makes it seem like she was doing this sign for the word 'that' but it is not the sign I know for 'that'.
