Signing Exact English (SEE)

American Sign Language (ASL) in Orange County, CA

ASL usually follows the TIME + TOPIC + COMMENT structure. American Sign Language (ASL) is the predominant language of Deaf communities in Orange County, CA and cities surrounding it, therefore it helps integration with the Deaf Community. It has evolved over time and it is a free-flowing, natural language. ASL is a complete, single language meaning that it not only has its own vocabulary but its own grammar that differs from spoken English.

Pidgin Signed English (PSE) or Signed English

Pidgin Signed English (PSE) is a blend of American Sign Language (ASL) and English. Culturally Deaf people, signing with each other, usually use ASL, however many individuals, (frequently deaf or hard of hearing) who figure out how to sign later in life, after hearing and using spoken English, do not sign strictly in ASL. Or maybe, they use a mix of ASL and English that is known as PSE. Culturally, hard of hearing individuals are generally extremely proficient at understanding and utilizing this mix of English and ASL when they sign with someone who doesn’t strictly use ASL.
