20 years ago I learned to sign 'fun' by brushing down the tip of the nose with the U hand, then changing to the Y hand, making it 'funny'. Is that old hat now?

Inflections

"Inflections" are added to basic signs for a more exact expression. Some of the inflections are "ment", "ness", "er", "ing" "ly" just to name a few, and the "y" that Dorothy mentioned above. I have a list of them in one of my older ASL books. That book is dated 1989. I don't think inflections are used anymore.   I took ASL classes in Louisiana and we never used them. I know I'm replying to an old post; just wanted to share.
