Culture & History topic: Who was Edward Miner Gallaudet?

Brief answer: Edward was the son of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet and Sophia Fowler Gallaudet.  Edward was the first president of (what is now known as) Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.. He was president of Gallaudet University from 1864 to 1910.
For more information see: Gallaudet, Edward Miner


The sign labeled (or glossed) as "QUOTES" can be interpreted different ways depending on your sentence.  For example the sentence "What are you enthusiastic about?" uses the "QUOTE" sign to mean "topic" and might be typed as "TOPIC YOU ENTHUSIASTIC WHAT?"


Notes and optional reading:

The phrase, " RESTAURANT, YOU LIKE EAT DIFFERENT [shift] DIFFERENT YOU?" has various interpretations.
In general it means:
"Do you like to eat at different restaurants?" or
"Do you like eating at different restaurants?"

But it could also be interpreted as meaning "When you go to a restaurant do you like to eat different things?"

To make the phrase more clear you can sign "YOU LIKE EAT DIFFERENT DIFFERENT RESTAURANT YOU?"
Or even "YOU LIKE GO DIFFERENT DIFFERENT RESTAURANT YOU?" (The assumption being that when you get there you go ahead and eat as opposed to simply sitting there staring longingly at the menu.)

The phrase "RESTAURANT YOU LIKE EAT DIFFERENT DIFFERENT YOU" provides an example of when OSV (object / subject / verb) sentence construction doesn't work as well as SUBJECT VERB OBJECT (SVO) sentence construction.

For discussion sake consider the idea that to remove ambiguity the sign RESTAURANT could be duplicated. For example, "RESTAURANT, YOU LIKE EAT DIFFERENT DIFFERENT RESTAURANT YOU?" But if we are going to place RESTAURANT near the end of the sentence we can save time and effort by just using dropping the first usage of "RESTAURANT" and keeping the second or in other words using "subject verb object" sign order.



RUN-OUT-OF, deplete, depleted, used up, used up, ran out of, out of, ⁠
If we do the RUN-OUT-OF sign with the ndh palm down (instead of up) it still means "run out of" but it also starts leaning toward the concept of "run out of time." Doing the RUN-OUT-OF sign with the ndh palm up is a slightly more general version of the sign.
