ASL Grammar: Wh-Word Questions

wh-words

Wh-word questions are questions that use words like who, why, where, what, or how (etc). In order to ask a wh-word question, you should do the following:

  • lower your eyebrows*
  • lean your head slightly forward at the end
  • sign the wh-word at the end of your question

*You can lower your eyebrows for the whole question or only when you sign the wh-word at the end of the question.
