NOT-YET The line above the signs indicates non-manual signals (face, etc.)
Yes/No questions (questions that can be answered with a yes or a no) Eyebrows up (raised the entire sentence) Slightly higher at the very end
Wh-word Questions Eyebrows go down Lowered once the wh-word is signed, over the wh-word and the rest of the sentence; slightly lower at the end of the sentence Who, What, When, Where, Why, How, For-For (What for)
Each must be formed correctly to make an accurate sign
