You want to explain that? I don't see it. I communicate with the hearing people all the time and they talk to me like they talk to other people.
How's that many words you fingerspell is lost to a deaf person?
I haven't talked to a deaf person or used ASL in ages so perhaps I'm out of touch here. When I say in ages, I mean in years.
Will try...*sigh*... I do use ASL and have some friends that are deaf...there have been many times when I've been in conversation about something...and didn't know the Sign for certain words....so I fingerspelled them....got a 'blank' face there....even wrote it down, the same thing....BUT if I had of known the sign for that word, feel sure my deaf friend(s) would have understood what I was trying to say...Then again...would the word have the same meaning to a hearing person as it does to a deafie?....
