Sentence example

Gloss: /\WORD fs-SOLILOQUY | IX2 fs-MONOLOGUE [nod] IX1 | IX2 MEAN rh-q-WHAT/\ TWO-THEY MEAN /\ONE PERSON/\ LONG [gloss+++] SAME conj-UNDERSTAND/\ DIFFERENT conj-WHAT IX1 ONE PERSON MONO-TALK CL:1 PEOPLE CL:4-WATCH-PERSON TALKING | IX2 [neg] [gloss] ALONE MONO-TALK [gloss].

English equivalent: Both terms soliloquy and monologue refer to a long speech by one person, but a monologue can be addressed to other people, whereas in a soliloquy the speaker is always talking to him/herself.

Remind that glosses are NOT translation of the English equivalent of words. They are only symbols of the ASL signs themselves, not translating the meanings. For examples, [gloss] is an empty gloss that no gloss can fit a sign. Another, the gloss MONO-TALK is a made-up gloss to identify the sign accompanied with a facial grammar.

Look at the ASL translation in the video, not the glosses, for full equivalent of meaning and concept.
