Funs Facts
about
Sign
Language
ASL is considered a
foreign language
ASL has its own vocabulary, grammar,
word order and style and does not
necessarily reflect English words.
ASL originates from France, that’s why
French Sign Language is very similar to
ASL.
Different countries have
different sign language
Fun
Sign Language developed
naturally from interactions
between people and was
influenced by their age, gender,
culture and more.
Facts
There are about 6,000 different
sign languages around the world.
The 1960s were a time of great change
Although ASL Standards have been around since the early 1800s,
people were not accepting of the deaf or sign language. The Deaf
were denied even the ability to drive. It wasn’t until the 1960s did
change and human rights begin to appear thanks to the hard work of
the local deaf community. Local Deaf clubs provided a place where
the Deaf could socialize and share ideas, news, and political issues
and eventually create and watch captioned films!
Other big changes during the 1960s
Learning Human Rights
In 1966 The NAD fought for
the right of a Deaf couple to
adopt a hearing child. The
judge said that the child
would not have a normal
home. There was a huge
outpouring of support from
the Deaf community from all
over the United States and
the couple was awarded
custody of that child.
A Deaf man invented the
Teletypewriter (TTY) for the Deaf
in 1964. Also, the National
Registry of Interpreters for the
Deaf began that year. The first
linguistic study of American Sign
Language (ASL) by William
Stokoe at Gallaudet University
was published in 1965.
American Sign Language
Facial expressions
play an important role
When hearing people use spoken language,
rhythm and tone are present while
speaking. In American Sign Language,
facial expressions notate rhythm and tone.
That said, the person “listening” in the
conversation will also look at the signer’s
mouth.

acts like Kendrick Lamar and
