Here are some fun facts about sign language!
- American Sign Language (ASL) is, in fact, considered a language in and of itself. It’s the third most commonly used one in the United States, following behind English and Spanish.
- Like other languages, ASL has various dialects and regional differences.
- Puns do, in fact, exist in sign language. One example is “pasteurized milk,” which can be signed across the eyes to take on the double meaning, “past-your-eyes” milk.
- Sign language is learned in the same way people learn spoken languages.
