the local public school system has adult education classes, for degree completion, or certification programs, or just one-shot classes like cooking and stuff.
there’s a commercial on tv… unfortunately i can’t find it on youtube at all. but it’s advertising for the american sign language class.
and it has video from the class. the teacher demonstrates how to sign “hamburger”
then it shows a student introducing herself in front of the class
then it shows a student asking a question. she signs “more one time, hamburger?”
what the hell does that mean
if you’re trying to ask the teacher to repeat the sign, you would say “again please?”
or if you’re not sure you have it correct, you would say “hamburger… is that right?”
or something like that
but every time i see this woman ask “more one time, hamburger?” i get ragey
IT IS A LANGUAGE
IT HAS GRAMMAR
you are trying to use english grammar with signs. for one thing, you don’t even have the english grammar correct. but seriously. american sign language is a language. it’s not just a visual representation of english.
also, you wouldn’t say “more one time” in english. you would say “one more time.” come on.
why would you showcase somebody being so stupid while trying to advertise for your class
