Asking a yes/no question in ASL

A yes-no question is usually accompanied with the upward brows, widened eyes and forward head. Sometimes, holding the last word at the end of sentence also anticipates a response.

Practice non-manual grammar for yes/no questions: raise brows and lean your head forward.

Example

Gloss: you married?
English translation: Are you married?
