Expressing manners and etiquette
Learn how to express ASL phrases such as "I'm sorry", "you're welcome", etc.
It expresses as either thanks or thank-you in ASL.
Gloss: i sorry where "I" is the pronoun.
English equivalent to I am sorry.
This is often used when referring to oneself rather than including the pronoun.
English equivalent: you are welcome
There is no need to sign you since it is already understood in general contexts. When somebody says "thank you", you reply welcome in ASL.
Do not say your welcome in ASL. Understandably, it is common to see some English-speaking people saying "ur welcome" or "your welcome" in North America because it comes from the sound of you're welcome where it is the contraction of you are welcome. It might sound okay, if not strictly incorrect, in English, but it absolutely does not look right in ASL.
