 I came across this page and was inclined to read it: [[Sign_Language]]. Upon reading the page I learned quite a lot about American Sign Language. First is that Sign Languge is very different from spoken language, and is not at all similar to English.THe language has more in common with Japanese than with Englsih.Another thing is that ASL has its own grammer and syntax. There are so many things that matter when using Sign Language including hand position, facial expressions,​ and body language and position. All of these things can make a difference in how the signs are interpreted by the reciever. In a way these things are like the inflection and connotation of the voice in spoken language. Here is a another site on ASL: http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​American_Sign_Language I came across this page and was inclined to read it: [[Sign_Language]].
