After receiving sizeable interest in my recent blog about Filipino Sign Language, I became more eager to show you one more.
Watch another sample FSL idiom of the English phrase “childhood friend” or “old acquaintance.” The short video was wonderfully executed this time by a Deaf boy also using the YouTube name LearnFSL. Do you see some ASL signs? I’ve again added a notation below in order for you to understand it.
The FSL sign CODE is “EX-OLD“. FOR EXAMPLE, WE WERE TOGETHER AS CHILDREN GROWING UP. AH, I REMEMBER YOU. WE WERE EX-FRIENDS. WE WERE TOGETHER BEFORE. Then, he signed “EX-OLD“.
Sign “E-X”. Then fingerspell “O-L-D” using one hand pointing to a person. A variation could be “O-L-D” using both hands faced together. This is used when storytelling.
