Hi! My name is Jonty, I'm 21 and a 2nd year medical student at Edinburgh uni. Like a lot of people on here I am now working from home due to COVID-19, but am keen to keep learning sign language as I was taking classes at uni. I hope that one day I can use what I have learnt to help patients without needing to find an interpreter. I am about halfway through my online intro course but have done lessons before. If anyone wants to practice with just let me know. I'm pretty easy going and have a lot of spare time atm, would be fun!
Hi! I am a high school student that is planning a project to create a booklet of basic signs in a variety of different sign languages around the world for emergencies used by healthcare professionals. I was wondering if anyone could help me with some BSL grammar. I just have 5 questions that needs to be translated, but still haven't quite grasped the concept of sentence structuring in BSL. 1. "Where does it hurt?" into HURT WHERE? 2. "What is your name?" into NAME YOU WHAT? 3. "Do you know sign language?" or "Do you sign?" into SIGN YOU? 4. "Do you consent?" into CONSENT YOU? 5. "Do you have any family we can call?" into FAMILY HAVE CALL? Are any of these correct? I'd appreciate any form of help I can get! Thank you in advance for helping me in the process of creating this booklet for local hospitals to communicate with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. (Also, if anyone knows other sign languages: Chinese, French, Russian, or Spanish, and can help with some grammar or words, please contact me: [email protected]!
