"Some People Just Don't Belong"- Caddyshack
I studied ASL right up until all the old folks fell over dead from the chink flu. I remember enough of what I learned to be able to understand what this guy was signing. I think it's funny.
Looks like a good ol' boy.
Yet he signs like a New Yorker - go figure!
And, one other thing, I had never heard the mook governor talk before - good lord what a horrible accent he has. Set aside the fact that he has the morals of a cartoon skunk and the blood of tens of thousands of elderly folks on his hands, that accent alone should have been enough to sink his presidential ambitions.
He also killed retards...LIKE HITLER!!
I was wondering what happened to Troop.
Does sign language have accents?
That is an excellent question, Amartel, and the answer is - yes, yes it does. It is more a nature of regional signs that are not known outside of a given area, but it can also be something as granular as signs known only in small family or school groups. Also, the immediate culture of the person signing is expressed in their use of ASL - for example, in Brooklyn "Youse" is an actual word.
