Do you want to know more? Signing declarative and interrogative clauses

how to sign a declarative clause and an interrogative clause.

So far, we have seen how to produce a declarative sentence in LSC, as well as how to ask a content question (with and without interrogative signs). Remember that in most of the cases in declarative sentences the verb is placed at the end. In content questions, the interrogative sign is also placed at the end.

Below you will find some examples where Gemma first signs a declarative sentence and then signs the corresponding content question.

We would like you to do the same. Record two sentences: a declarative and a content question in a single video. Share a link to this video in the comments. Don’t forget the facial expression in the interrogative version!
