    • https://www.hippovideo.io/video/play/OIt0LoNgd3PJhBY24uOi7A Sometimes signs are different because : maybe old sign or area where live. These two signs mean something different to me ,I think. Can you tell me the uses/ meanings for you?
    • Hello,  My name is Nicki [ sign name]. I grew up signing PSE. I am HOH and raised in hearing community. My grandmother and her mother were deaf , but learned PSE and lip reading ( different times/ different culture). Working on my ASL syntax. My receptive is still very english,so sometimes I miss details when in conversation using fast ASL grammar. I am hoping to find practice partners. Blessings This is my hippo video ( have no Flash Player). https://www.hippovideo.io/video/play/sJZjcxpc2LJSE6DIoGzQ6A
    • I find myself using these words a lot, and just wanted to share.
