Emergency Signs


Recommended Posts

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]!

    • Hi, I’m Artio. I learned finger spelling when I was very little. I love languages - I enjoy learning foreign languages, computer coding, and I’ve been wanting to learn BSL for a long time but struggled to find and pay for resources. I work full time as a data analyst. I study part time towards a Natural Sciences degree with an emphasis on Biology and Chemistry. I’m autistic and have ADHD.  I’d love to be able to talk without using sound. Speaking out loud feels like a lot m
