A student asked me how to do the sign for "sign language."
I showed her the sign for "SIGN / signing." She asked why I didn't add the sign "language." I explained that we don't need to add the word "language" when discussing "signing" any more than we need to add the word "language" when we ask someone if they speak English.
Compare these two sentences:
1. Do you speak English?
2. Do you speak English language?
Most fluent English speakers would use the first version (with out adding the redundant word "language.")
It is an accepted fact that ASL is a language.
Either of these two questions are typical ways to find out whether someone can sign:
We can ask, "YOU KNOW ASL?"
Or we could ask, "YOU SIGN?"
Also, the sign for "SIGN / Sign Language" has evolved over the years to include several versions. I show those versions in some of my later instructional videos over at Youtube.com/billvicars
For an example watch me ask the following question:
Are they learning how to sign? or "Did they learn sign language?) (THEY LEARN SIGN-LANGUAGE?)
