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]!

    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.

    • Hi everyone, I'm staring a level 1 BSL course at the end of April. Bit pre-emptive maybe, but I thought I'd sign up and maybe get a head start and introduce myself. My name's Liam, I have no previous experience with signing, but I'm training part time for the next few years to become a counsellor/therapist so I'm also looking to learn as much BSL and possibly some Makaton with the aim of becoming as inclusive a therapist as possible.
    • As weird as it sounds, I totally get this. I'm not learning BSL for D&D purposes, but one of my best friends who I play with is pretty good at it. I thought it'd make an excellent version of Thieves Cant or even the Drow Hand Signal Language (which is, essentially, very similar to BSL!). I'd definitely considered using it in a character too :D
    • Hey everyone... I'm just starting to learn BSL with an online course. I am very slow and I'm looking for practice partners in and around Liverpool. Prefer live practice but video chat also welcome. I'm hearing
      I have intermediate ASL so it's a little confusing but I'm making some progress...  Thanks and hope to hear from you soon
