- Various question types (rhetorical, yes-no and wh-questions),
- Affirmative and negating statements,
- Emphatic and unmarked comments/reactions
Reciprocal Signals ASL is an interactive language, requiring fairly sustained eye contact and visual signals throughout a signed interaction indicating attention to what other signers are conveying, level of comprehension and need for clarification, as well as agreement or disagreement.
