Unit 12 “Fast Forward…” A game for modifying signs 1.Everyone stands in a circle 2.Each person thinks of one sign they like, then take turns signing it. 3.Now change the sign in the following ways: Sign it big Sign it fast Sign it slow Sign it low Sign it high Sign it small Repeat it many times Sign it backwards Sign it privately Sign it cheerfully Sign it sadly Sign it crazy Sign it surprised Sign it angrily Sign it emphatically Sign it doubtfully
Unit 12 Recurring and Continuous Inflections An inflection is a change or modification in the way a sign is moved. When signing about illnesses, symptoms can happen repeatedly or continuously. Use a time sign and modify the movement of a sign for an illness or a symptom to explain how it has affected someone. Use NMS to show intensity or severity. recurring continuous
Unit 12 Examples of Recurring/Continuous Inflections #1 uninflected recurring continuous

Unit 12 Examples of Recurring/Continuous Inflections #3
Unit 12 Uninflected, Continuous or Recurring? Signing Naturally 2, Unit 14 On the video, you will see 18 sentences, each with an uninflected or inflected verb sign indicating how often the activity has occurred. On the handout, circle which verb form is used in the sentence. Also note how the time signs agree with the inflections.
Translate the following sentences into ASL using recurring or continuous time signs and inflections. 1.Every afternoon I have a headache. 2.On Mondays, I’m tired. 3.I get a cold/runny nose every 3 months or so. 4.Once a year I get a sore throat. 1.All afternoon I had a headache. 2.I was tired all day Monday. 3.For 3 months I’ve had a cold/runny nose! 4.For a whole year my throat has been sore.
Unit 12 Classifier Practice-“At the Garage” Purpose: Using Classifiers and mime without fingerspelling For this game, pretend you are in a foreign country. Your car has a problem, and you need to communicate what is wrong, but you can neither speak nor sign to the mechanic. You can use acting, gesturing and handshapes to describe the problem with your car. Each person gets a card with a car problem. Take turns being the customer and the mechanic until everybody has had a chance to be both. The mechanic shows that he/she understands by facial expression and mimicking or repeating what the customer has described.
Unit 12 Turn signals won’t workOne headlight is burned out Car won’t startHeadlights are very dim at night Can’t shift into reverseHorn doesn’t work Over 50 mph, the car shakes a lotSunroof leaks Engine dies when the car stops moving (stop light, stop sign) High beam lights don’t work Engine light showing on the dashboard Need an oil change, check oil Water is leaking under the driver’s seat when it rains Heater doesn’t work; it blows cold air Car overheated and steam poured out Windshield wipers won’t turn off Tire is flat and all tires need to be rotated Can’t roll window up – it’s stuck Brakes not working wellLocked keys in car “At the Garage” - Car Problems
Unit 12 Stuck, “unsure how, or unable to change a situation” Example: I don’t know what to do! I work at 8, and I don’t have a ride or money for the bus.
Unit 12 Inflections for Behaviors or Tendencies Remember: an inflection is a modification of a sign that can show how often something occurs. If a person or pet do something repeatedly or exhibit a certain behavior frequently, the sign will be repeated several times, and an NMS added that illustrates the intent of the behavior.

Unit 12 A Good Solution? Which solution fits the problem? Each student gets a set of a few problem cue cards and the same number of solutions cue cards. Students mingle and complain to each other using the cues on their complaint cards, but are only allowed to give the solutions that are on their cue cards. Students keep signing with others until they have found a reasonable solution to each of their problem cues. Write down the solutions on a separate piece of paper.
