Learn Auslan – Level 1 – Some words to indicate purpose

Here are some common signs that indicate purpose:

Vocab:

  • Will
  • Won’t
  • Can
  • Can’t
  • Want
  • Don’t want
  • Have
  • Don’t have (here I demonstrate the handshape I’m using)
  • Need
  • Must
  • Should
  • Prefer
  • Because
  • Can’t be bothered (you’ll see that sometimes a whole English phrase is captured with a single sign)

In the video I signed ‘prefer’ with several flicks. But really, it should be just two flicks.
