Conjunctions


Recommended Posts

Heyy,

So I'm practicing my Level 1 words and phrases and finding it hard not to just sign lots of mini sentences e.g. My name is Ellie. I am 24 years old. I have 2 brothers. My brother is called.." etc. Are there signs for words such as "and", "but", "because", "so" etc. so I can sign longer continuous sentences...? Without a word such as "and" I don't understand how you say more than just lots of short phrases and sentences. I was practicing earlier siging "My favourite colour is Blue" and then i wanted to go on and say more about myself or say "My favourite colours are Blue and green"...?

Can anyone help?

TIA!

xx

Hi Ellie,

BSL grammar is a little different, conjuctions are used, but you find BSL the sentence structure is different. I struggle to explain it. For example, you say name me ….brothers, me have 3...please anyone correct me if I am wrong. 

Use https://www.signbsl.com

They have a library of words

I mixed up the above sign for sign/words...I used finger spelling instead. I wanted to say BSL grammar is different compared to English.

    • Hi, I'm a musician and artist and learning BSL to improve my communication skills and start the process of developing performances/artwork/events that are suitable and interesting for both D/deaf and hearing audiences/artists. Learning BSL online seemed like a good place to start and a way to connect with people. I co-direct an experimental sound festival based in the Midlands and we would like to develop some new work with D/deaf and hearing artists to make multi-media performances/artworks.  I

    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills.
