A Question for My ASL-Speaking Friends

Is it considered bad manners to sign with your hands full?

Ooh, that's a great question. Make sure you tell us if you get an answer.

Will do. Or, you know, you could subscribe to follow-up comments and hear for yourself.

We just talked about this in my sociolinguistics class. The answer, apparently, is "yes." It is not, however, bad manners to sign with you mouth full. Which makes sense. :-)

Well that makes perfect sense. Thank you, Schwa.
