Nodding is more casual and should be used with friends and family. Seem strange. It’s different than English, but not so strange. Many languages say you’re welcome this way.Zinza, Jason E. (2006) Master ASL! Sign Media, Inc. Burtonsville, MD.
36 Asking For HelpThe meaning of some signs in ASL change depending on the way the signs are move. For instance, the sign HELP can mean He help me or I help you if the movement is towards the signer or someone else. This feature of ASL is called agreement verbs.Zinza, Jason E. (2006) Master ASL! Sign Media, Inc. Burtonsville, MD.
