Learning Goal: I’m working on a other discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Discussion 1: Black American Sign Language
Identified dialects of ASL include Black American Sign Language (BASL), used by African American signers, and Indigenous Sign Language, used by Native American and indigenous signers, as well as regional dialects. A single word may have multiple variations depending on who the signer is and the culture and region in which they live. BASL in particular has received awareness recently through social media and through Gallaudet University’s (n.d.) Black ASL Project, which seeks to record the history and distinct linguistic features of the dialect.
For this Discussion, you investigate the historical roots of BASL and compare it with ASL.

To PrepareReview your course announcements for possible information related to this week’s Discussions.
Review the Learning Resources on Black American Sign Language. Consider the differences between BASL and ASL and how and why those differences may have developed.
Compare BASL and ASL, including at least two differences. Then, explain how and why these differences developed. What role did racism and the historical context play in the formation of BASL? What do BASL and other ASL dialects demonstrate about Deaf language and community?
