Transcript of Noun/Verb Pairs
The motion of a noun of a noun/verb pair is generally a double movement that is smaller than that of a verb. Hearing aid
(noun) MY HEARING AID BREAK
(verb) JACK PUT-ON HEARING AID
(noun) NEW BICYCLE I HAVE
(verb) TOMORROW I RIDE-BIKE Examples There are many nouns and verbs which are related to each other in meaning and form and differ only in movement.
In ASL noun/verb pairs are signs that use the same handshape, location, and orientation, but have a different movement. Noun/ Verb Pairs When there is a noun that has a related verb like TEACH/ TEACHER the noun is often made as a compound sign using the verb and AGENT sign.
TO-TEACH + AGENT = TEACHER
It is important to note that the repeated movement for the verb is deleted when it is used with the AGENT sign Review – Agent Sign
NOUN/VERB Pairs ASL Grammar Verbs use a single or smaller movement.
Nouns use a double or larger movement.
