Free Online Sign Language: ASL 3 – Unit 4 Sample

In this unit sample of our free online sign language classes, you will be learning how to sign accident narratives.

Accident Narratives

There may come a time when you need to describe an incident where you injured yourself.

The best way to do this is:

  1. Describe the situation
  2. Indicate the kind of object or surface that injured you
  3. Use a sign like WRONG, NOT-SEE, or OVERLOOK if something unexpected happened
  4. Use classifiers to show how you slipped, fell, or otherwise injured yourself
  5. Tell the result or your feelings afterward

You would use this for narratives like, “I slipped on the banana and fell backward” or “I didn’t see the pole and I ran right into it”.

In the video below, our signer will demonstrate various classifiers used to describe accidents and injuries.
