    Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone knows what the sign language for 'Will you marry me again?' in American Sign Language?

    I am planning to pop my question using American Sign Language and see if my poor partner can work it out at all!!

    Yes, I do. I have 90 hours of sign.

    However, how to show it to you, eh?

    Wait here a sec there is a website...

    Remembering of course the deaf think in pictures so it would be again marry me, not the English translation.

    Hold tight...

    ASL Browser

    Try this.

    Again is signed by placing the fingertips of the right hand at a direct 90 degree angle into the palm of the upraised inward facing left hand.

    Marry of course is the sign for union...

    You won't need to sign "me" as that is of course who is asking...

    I hope the site helps.

    AHA! I wondered why you were asking after the signs.

    So then, you understand the difference between thinking in pictures instead of words! Wasn't sure, regardless of your username.

    I did not know there was a difference in sign languages. Hmm, learn something new everyday.

    So is it very different from BSL?

    I work with a deaf boy at school and I know a few basic signs. Mostly learnt from Mr Tumble but hey, it all works. :thumbs:
