Leroy is very proud of his entry into the high school's Art Fair. Many visiting parents see only a wad of CHEWED bubble GUM, but art is in the eye of the beholder. A panel of judges who are teachers feel stumped, looking at one another with a tiny "F" in the light reflection in their eyes, but he has made a very powerful artist statement that makes on society. Admittedly, the judges were greatly moved by the statement that argues that we shouldn't be satisfied with being chewed up, spit out, and stuck to the bottom of the one's shoe or under a desk. It's part of an installement. While the judges were, nevertheless, not delighted with his sculpture, pop artist Andy Wahrol might endorse his work. I guess the judges didn't feel the same way, because he was disqualified. You know what, true art doesn't appeal to the mainstream. It's underground, or on this case, on the ground.

ASL has its own grammar and structure in sentences that works differently from English. For plurals, verb inflections, word order, etc., learn grammar in the "ASL Learn" section. For search in the dictionary, use the present-time verbs and base words. If you look for "said", look up the word "say". Likewise, if you look for an adjective word, try the noun or vice versa. E.g. The ASL signs for French and France are the same. If you look for a plural word, use a singular word.
