I am a student at the University of Minnesota, currently in ASL 3. I have the Random House Webster's ASL Dictionary, but I often rely on
your site for current, cultural descriptions of signs. (The personal, anecdotal information is much more useful than a basic dictionary.)
So, I was wondering if you could add signs for gay, lesbian, etc? (Or are they already on the site somewhere and I'm just missing them?) Do
you recommend using the initialized signs on the chin or is there something more up-to-date? You could also add signs for "partner" and
other related signs.
Thanks for your help,
Hi Bill,I've seen the "tugging on the earlobe" sign in James Woodward's book, Signs of Sexual Behavior, but it is quite old so I am never sure what is still in use.Around here it is quite common to use "part" + the agent sign for "partner."...Amy
