When To Fingerspell

  • Definition: When do we fingerspell terms? Do we fingerspell, for example, all of the names of the code in Java programming? Do we fingerspell for pronouns? Any other suggestions? Discuss it here!

    I'm in mathematics. I always fingerspell the word 'real' when I sign "real numbers". Similarly, I always fingerspell the words 'complex' and 'imaginary' when I sign "complex numbers" and "imaginary numbers." the ASL signs 'real', 'complex', and 'imaginary' are descriptive adjectives and in the mathematics sense, the words 'real', 'complex', and 'imaginary' serve as labels, nothing else.
