THREE FACTS ABOUT SIGN LANGUAGE

1. SIGN LANGUAGE VARIES FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY.

1. Most of the country have their own sign language or share a certain sign language but, with a different dialect.

2. SIGN LANGUAGES HAVE THEIR OWN DEFINITE GRAMMAR.

For instance, a well constructed question must be accompanied by the correct eyebrow position. When a person is asking questions related to who, where, what, why and when, then the eyebrows are kept down. If the question is regarding a yes/no situation, the eyebrows are kept up.

3. SIGN LANGUAGE DOESN’T ONLY USE SIGNS TO COMMUNICATE.

It uses facial expression, hand movement and position, gestures and body language to communicate.
