Thank you, Suzanne! This does give me a good reason to learn the
2-handed alphabet, which is so different from the ASL (and LSF) one.
However, since the director asked for translation of "mom" and "dad",
rather than "mother" and "father", does BSL make this distinction? ASL
does - although the difference between the more formal and more casual
signs can be subtle to new signers.
Best,
Kim
