I really enjoy reading your ASL headcannons. Can I ask for ASL h/c on what quirks and traits of the s/o that they will fall in love with.
// I’m soooo sorry I’ve been gone so long! D,: I am a little rusty but I hope that I can make up for all the time I missed. please forgive me. OTL //
Ace: He’d love when you’d ramble off about something you’re passionate about. He loves watching you’re face light up with excitement about this and that. It always makes him smile when he sees your smile. He especially loves how care free and adventurous you are.
Sabo: He loves how stubborn you can be sometimes as long as he’s not on the receiving end of it. He loves your determination, drive, spirit and your passion. He loves to spar with you and notices how you get stronger every time but even when he defeats you he loves that you don’t give up until you literally can’t move. And even though you try to hide it you pout and he absolutely finds it adorable.
Luffy: Your smile is what makes his heart do flip flops and even though he can’t explain why he just loves it. He loves to watch you when you don’t realize it when he’s not smothering you with his hugs. When you’re doing little things or helping someone with a project you give an air of complete happiness and care free joy that ends up making everyone feel at ease.
Learners of American Sign Language seem to have a difficult time understanding the structure of ASL. For the next couple of posts, I will be discussing each type of sentence structure known to American Sign Language. Then, I will give you a quiz to see how well you do at the end of each posting.
First of all, not everyone using American Sign Language signs “Pure” ASL. Usually, deaf and hearing people alike will sign some version of ASL and Pidgin Signed English (PSE), which is using American Sign Language, but in English word order. As a note, remember, ASL does not use words like, “be”, “am”, “or”, etc. That would be more of a Signed English version of sign language.
Now, that leads us to our first sentence structure, “Declarative Sentences”. A declarative sentence simply tells a statement, or makes a declaration.
There are a few ways to sign words in ASL. One of the most important things to remember when learning American Sign Language is that every person will sign differently. Here is a simple declarative sentence used in ASL:
Subject (Who or what)?
So, now you have the simple declarative statement structure in ASL (SVO).
Example of a declarative sentence in English and in ASL:
English: Paul bought a car.
ASL: Subject = Paul Verb = Bought Object = Car
Complete ASL Declarative Sentence: Paul bought car
English: The cup fell on the floor.
ASL: Subject = Cup Verb = Fell. Object = Floor
Complete ASL Declarative Sentence: Cup fall floor
English: The store closes at 9:00 p.m.
ASL: Subject = Store Verb = Close Object (Time) = 9:00 night
Complete ASL Declarative Sentence: Store close (time) 9:00 night
