ASL and English comparison of "parallel structure"

Recommended Posts

Hello--

I'm the Curriculum & Instruction Specialist at a school for the deaf and I'm working on developing a unit using "parallel structure" in writing at the high school level. As a bilingual school, we believe it is best to present this concept in ASL first. Does anyone know of any videos (or might be willing to make one) showing a Deaf person using parallel structure in their native language? (In general, parallel structure is when the same pattern is used repeatedly, a good example is the start of Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities. However, it also means agreement with verb usage within a sentence at its simplest form.) A summary of parallel structure in English is available here: https://literarydevices.net/parallel-structure/

Thanks for any info you can provide!

    • Hi everyone! I just started learning ASL a few days ago and hope to further my learning by practicing through video chat on here! I am an extreme beginner so I'm in search of other beginners or experienced signers that are willing to be patient.  If anyone is interested, I would love to schedule a time! Can't wait to learn more!!
    • Hi Michelle, I have been learning ASL for 3 months or so but have yet to sign with anybody. I would love to chat with you if you are still looking for friends?
    • Hi. My name is Camille. I have been learning ASL for the past 7 months because my infant is HOH and I would like to be able to support his communication. I'm pretty new to signing but I am eager to learn. 
    • I have 2 semesters of ASL but I need brushing up. I would love to be an interpreter someday. Looking to practice with someone (deaf, HOH, or hearing) who is PATIENT please.
