How Do You Diagram A Sentence In ASL?

Jul 07, 2008 I 1.21 Jiggawatts!.

Each course here at Independent Study needs an over-all splash package consisting of banners, title graphics, and the like in order to tie the whole thing together. What these are and what they contain is generally left up to the artist, but it’s always at the discretion of the course designer. For ASL, the course I’m currently working on, I thought, well when you learn a vocal language, you work a lot with learning how to form sentences and where which words should go and what tenses and cases they’re in, so the equivalent for sign language must be fancy diagrams of hands and fingers and the like. Thus, I drew out hands in the ASL positions and threw together some fancy faux-infographics for them as if they were diagrams. It didn’t pass as the designer was looking for something more traditional, but I still like my first idea better.

    I didn’t realize Gollum moonlighted as a hand model. And I’m pretty sure you stole the sentence diagramming idea from my comment the other day. I’ll send a bill shortly.

    i like the hands – i have NEVER been able to draw one that didn’t look like it matriculated in the kindergarten wing of an elementary school.
