Learning sign language to help my son


New Member
My son is taking ASL for his foreign language credit. I’m trying to help, but changing English Grammar to ASL Grammar is stumping me. Is there a list of English words that are not signed when converting sentences?

Good question?nope, least I've not seen, maybe we can make one, let us start with articles and state of being :dunno: :confused:
I'm not sure if you're still interested or not but usually the conjunctive adverbs, ie. Is, the, and, be, otherwise, finally, but.

They can be used but in traditional ASL they're mostly left out.
