Had a short discussion with a hearing signer about some cool things you can do with sign language that you can’t do with spoken language. I only came up with the first one. 🙂
- You can communicate through a glass window
- You can communicate across a room without making much more effort (as opposed to shouting in speech)
- You can talk while eating
- You can talk underwater
Makes me wish I had more signing friends. I’ve never ever tried that last one. I want to!
