This episode explores the use of facial expressions in ASL. Facial expressions are used to show "affect" and serve as transitional markers to help guide the flow of conversation. Not only do facial behaviors signal affective and communicative information, but specific facial behaviors also function as obligatory grammatical markers. This video is intended to help those who are proficient in ASL improve their skills in and knowledge of ASL linguistics. They are in ASL with no voice-over or captions. Part of the "Advanced American Sign Language" series.
