Note to Instructors and Students:
ASL University is a living, growing curriculum. It will constantly improve as time goes on. You are welcome to access and use this document but please know that it may (will) change over time. This document is not "the Lifeprint curriculum."  It is simply a small part of it.  Discussions regarding culture and grammar, (including but not limited to facial expressions, mouth morphemes, head tilts, shoulder shrugs, and other non-manual markers as well as classifiers, numerical incorporation, reversal of orientation, verb agreement, sweep plurality, etc.) are embedded in the more than 600 pages in the website.  I'm grateful to my many colleagues for their insight and feedback.  --Cordially, Dr. Bill Vicars

20. YOUR BACKPACK LIGHT-WEIGHT?


Note: "qm-w" stands for question mark wiggle. That is the process of holding an "x" hand up at the end of a sentence and wiggling the index finger (flexing it a few times.). When a sign gloss has an "!" exclamation point after it that means you should emphasize the sign. Sign it a bit faster and/or a bit more exaggerated than normal.
Note: "GROW (shift) GROW" means to sign "GROW" then move the sign a bit to the side and sign it again. This is a way of saying "garden." Some people sign "GROW" with a "G" handshape and call it an "initialized" form of the sign for garden, (I'd put that in the category of signed English rather than ASL).
Note: When done with two hands, the sign LOW can also mean "demote."

 (NOTE: In the sign BLAME-[rt] the "rt" means "aim this sign off to the right. Another way to say this would be to use the notation "PRO.3" which stands for "third person pronoun." Think of a first person pronoun as "I or me." A second person pronoun as "you." And a third person pronoun as "he or she." When I point to myself I'm using a "PRO.1." When I point to you I am using a "PRO.2." When I point off to the side referring to someone other than you and me, I'm using a third person referent or "Pro.3."
NOTE: In the practice sentences match the question to your partner, for example, if you are conversing with a teenage, unmarried girl, it makes no sense to ask her if her "wife" is stubborn. Instead you should modify the question to ask if her boyfriend is stubborn, or if her mother is stubborn. On the other hand, suppose your partner is clueless or being smart-alecky and asks you a question without modifying it. You could simply reply, "I NOT-YET MARRY. SOMEDAY MAYBE MY HUSBAND STUBBORN."
