             “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 privately
      •Sign it fast                  •Sign it cheerfully
      •Sign it slow                  •Sign it sadly
      •Sign it low                   •Sign it crazy
      •Sign it high                  •Sign it surprised
      •Sign it small                 •Sign it angrily
      •Repeat it many                •Sign it
      times                          emphatically
      •Sign it backwards   Unit 12   •Sign it doubtfully
       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.

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.

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.

      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.

           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.
