Has there been any discussion in the ASL literature on visual "homographs" where the 1 handshape and the D handshape are the same "meaning" in usage, like the 2 on a circle or a fist?
I can see the pictures fine, and yes, you could substitute the square base, it would be closer to how I sign it, personally; hand more like a fist than like an open circle.
I located these two signs from the ASL Literatuer Puddle
I'm sorry i have no idea what these signs mean, since I don't sign ASL - however from context I kinda assume the first means READ the second something like KNOWN-AS-IN-ENGLISH /QUOTE- however my question doesn't concern their meaning as such. My question is this:
Can these two signs still be read if you change the handshape to thjs handshape instead:
(naturally with the rotation needed for the first sign)
Really appreciate your feedback!
THANK you!! :)
