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 everyone, I'm Rebecca also known as Becca from Newcastle. I'm new to the BSL world, I was told last June that I needed to have hearing aids in both ears due to slipping through the cracks as a child and no one picked up that I'm partially deaf. Now, according to audiologists they don't know how long or how short I will have the rest of my hearing due to not being on any records so it would be good to make sure that I start learning now in case I ever do lose the rest of my hearing.  I

    • Hi all, My name is Claire and I'm taking the Introduction to BSL course. I learned Makaton growing up to communicate with my brother who was non-verbal but never officially learned BSL. I have followed a lot of people in the Deaf community recently on Youtube and other social media platforms who have inspired me to go back to sign and start again. I've been surprised by how many signs I remember and I would love to become proficient in BSL one day. I've got two coworkers who are also learni
