11.6 Simultaneous Signs

English Notes
BSL Video

This is when you use more than one sign at the same time. This shows the creativity of a person and you need to be very skilled to do this. For example, in Dorothy Miles’ poem ‘Trio’, one part is called ‘Afternoon’, and at one time, Dorothy Miles produces 3 signs at the same time, ‘THREE-OF-US-DOZE’ (referring to herself, the dog and the bird). This is amazingly creative.
