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 am Lyn. I am learning BSL as I had a head injury a few years ago. I lost most of my hearing and my speech was impaired for a while. It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
