I only say that if someone says they refuse to learn ANY signs, then yea most likely the person will get rejected.
Spanish is one language
English is one language
ASL is one language
The other forms r tools so what do u mean that sign comes in different forms?
Yes, there is French Sighn language, Spanish Sign language, and many more and they r languages separate from ASL just like spoken French, Spanish are separate from English.
If u say that signs have different forms then we can say English has different forms cuz SEE is English being made into the visual mode.
I guess a simple yes or no is what I was looking for. The question was when you said
were you referring to ASL? To me that was a simple yes or no question. It sound's like the answer is no and honestly a simple no would have sufficed. Don't always feel like you have to justify your position with me. You don't. In fact, in doing so you are complicating the issue far more than it needs to be for my purpose. If I need elaboration I will ask. But thank you nevertheless.
