I know a few signs in BSL though I'm not very fluent in it. ASL sign for mother is the five handshape at chin. In BSL, it's a fist held over your heart. One hearing person who knew BSL came to MSSD one day and showed me the sign for America. It's signed with all four fingers on thumb and you make a chewing motion while you place the handshape near your mouth. I asked if it was because Americans chew tobacco. (I had a roomaate who chewed tobacco and one of my teachers was always making jokes about tobacco chewers.) She said no, it's because Americans chew gum.

ASL signs can vary depending on where you're from. I wonder if that's possible for BSL.

No Chevy57... BSL has few signs that combines with the ASL, and BSL is very similar to AUSLAN, here. AUSLAN has few signs that are the same in ASL. BSL and AUSLAN uses two hands in fingerspelling, and ASL uses one hand to fingerspell but ASL uses two hands to sign, not fingerspelling.

Right, JClarke, I had met some deaf people from United Kingdom during Deafway II event last several years ago. I noticed that they have some BSL, very similar to ASL. I understood clear to read thier signs.

Is 'help' sign the same for both languages, closed hand with open thumb on open palm in upward motion?

And also for the yes / no sign?
yes - closed hand shaking up and down.
No - closed hand shaking sideways.


What's the ASL sign for father as I'm well acquainted with the mother sign. Is is the same except it's done at the side temples of head instead of the chin?

In BSL it's done with the first two fingers of both hands tapping together making the 'F' letter sign. I thought the Mother was also done in the same way as 'M' is made?

BSL and ASL, nope.

.

Yes in BSL and ASL, yes
No in BSL and ASL, no..

The No sign in ASL is different, the first and index finger close together and claps with the thumb equals the sign of ASL 'No'

Bottom = mother sign
Top of your head = father sign

The mother in BSl/AUSLAN is similar but first three fingers tapping the other palm hand.

Does this make it clear to you?

I always thought they were very different... enough for an ASL interpreter and a BSL interpreter to be needed in order for an ASL deaf person to communicate with a BSL deaf person. I saw this done at NTID a few years ago.
