  1. English: Mickey, you must = You have to // It is obligatory // There is no choiceMickey, you must not = You are not allowed to // It is against the rulesGerman:River, you must (Du musst) = You have to // It is obligatory // There is no choiceRiver, you must not (Du musst nicht) = You don't have to // It is not obligatory // There is a choiceWhich is it in BSL, like English or German? Or maybe neither?
  2. In English, one of the ways to ask a question is to invert the subject and the verb. For example: statement = "You can help me Nardole." >> question "Can you help me Nardole?".In BSL, is the structure:a) CAN YOU HELP ME ?b) YOU CAN HELP ME ?c) YOU HELP ME ?d) Something else?

    personal titles in BSL

    Hey Charlotte, I am also learning BSL so if anyone can correct this then please do! I can't seem to find an answer for BSL, but there is a video on it for ASL: The conclusion is that no, "mr, miss, mrs or ms" are not used in sign. Lucy
  4. I am also learning BSL, so anyone please correct me if this is incorrect! English = "What is the sign for 'tea'?" / BSL = T-E-A SIGN WHAT [question face] T-E-A: SIGN: 3RD TAB: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/sign-3.html WHAT: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/what-1.html
  5. Hey Isaac! I am also learning BSL, so if anyone wants to correct this then please do! Don't English = I don't like tea / BSL = I [shakes head and negative expression while signing "like"] LIKE TEA Want / Need (same sign, you can tell the difference by lipreading what is said simultaneously) https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/want-1.html Need can also be replaced by must sometimes: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/must-1.html Or https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/or-1.html She / He https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/it-1.html Always https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/always-1.html Timelines As you seem to know, BSL tenses work by first placing what you are saying in a timeline, for example very recent past, last week, soon, later on, next year, in a second etc. Mnay of these can be found on the site I have been using so far: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/ Or this one: https://www.signbsl.com/ Hope this helps! Lucy I also have a question, and maybe you know the answer to it?
  6. In English, there are three words that sound like "two: two, to, and too. Then the word "too" has two meanings: 1. As well - e.g. "I love Rose Tyler too", "I bring a banana to every party too" 2. Excessively - e.g. "The name Raxacoricofallapatorius is too long", "You blinked too slowly" It is very easy to find the sign for this first meaning of "too"! However, the only thing I can find for the second one is the sign for "too much" (like signing "day" but waggling your fingers). Can you help?
