How to use sign-language in a sentence?

  1. Robert DeMayo:

    The challenge for the hearing actors is that most of them don't know any sign language, so how are they going to know when to match when I am signing my lines? You really have to stick together closely so, even if they don't know what I'm saying, they know this sign and that movement means this, so they match it.

  2. Linguist Donna Jo Napoli:

    Children should be surrounded by sign language as much as possible as soon as the audiological status is determined, if the child gets a cochlear implant and does well with it, fantastic. Then the child is bi-lingual.

  3. Carol Padden:

    That's the funny part -- the two of them together, we shouldn't be taking sign language so seriously.

  4. John McCain:

    Maybe it was through some medium that I'm not familiar with. Maybe bouncing it off the ozone layer, for all I know, there's a lot of holes in the ozone layer, so maybe it wasn't the ozone layer that he bounced it off of. Maybe it was through hand telegraph, maybe sign language, who knows?

  5. Matt Maxey:

    I can have more of an impact going the unconventional route with someone like Chance and go into the areas nobody deaf has been able to get to before, it all leads to something that improves the community. You see sign language in a lot more places than ever before. People are becoming more curious and at the same time more aware of what is going on with the deaf community.
