Asl Spatial Agreement

In addition, spatial concordance can also show how far apart something is. If something is very far away, this can be shown by showing it by bending the movement of your hand with the index finger stretched, moving forward in slow motion and shaking your hand forward as you move forward. At the same time, the head is tilted slightly backwards, and the eyes blink as if looking at the distant object. Conversely, if an object is very close, this is shown in ASL by pointing it as if it were so close that you have to remove your index arm in a chicken position, bend your elbow and wrist, point at an angle down and forward. While you show this way, one can use a non-manual or natural behavior, also called proximity and called shoulder to shoulder, by lifting the shoulder of your index finger arm and wearing your cheek near your shoulder by grinding your teeth. In the study of American Sign Language, the notions of “spatial convergence”, “signatory perspective” and “principle of reality” are much balanced. These three closely related terms all simply refer to the signing and demonstration of places and other physical objects as they are in real life. In other words, if you describe in ASL where the bathroom is, you need to indicate the direction in which the bathroom is actually located, not in the opposite direction. This is generally what is meant by the principle of reality. You use what is called the “signature room” or the area in front of your body, where signs are signed, to show as clearly as possible where the objects are in relation to each other, so that the recipient can find their way from your visual description. Instant, that is, in which direction you look, and head tilt are used in addition to showing to describe the directions. For example, to display a right turn by pointing to the right, tilt your head to the left, as if you were looking right at the corner of the street. Many, not all, ASL verbs can be modulated to another meaning using one of these temporal aspects, distribution aspects, and spatial correspondences.

Some ASL verbs can be modulated to display verbs by changing the direction or movement of the verb. Note: Just because a verb is not normally modified to display a match between the subject and the verb does not mean that you cannot change the verb otherwise. For example, by reversing the orientation, the LIKE sign can be folded so that it does not mean “does not like”. This still does not determine who the subject is or what the object is, but it changes the meaning of the LIKE sign to the other way around. Invoice This use of spatial conformity can also be used to indicate the reference at the time. . . .
