I keep imagining a scenario where Yve gets so confused over Busker's name.

It'd be something like

Yve: What's that guy called?
Ri: Busker
Yve: *visible confusion* Like the people who play music in the subway for money?
Ri: *laughing*
Yve: *more confusion* What? How is that a name???
Ri: *even more laughing*

There isn't actually a sign for 'busker', but knowing Ri, she'd probably sign 'street musician' or something. But then of course Ri would apologize, actually telling her by fingerspelling, which Yve would then respond to with 'bitch', and possibly hitting her on the arm.

Lol. I think the term 'busker' for street musicians is a British thing, I'm not sure, lol.

Busker is indeed a British word for a person who performs music or other entertainment in the street for donations.

I didn't realize how British it was until after I said about the little scene that kept making me laugh, lol.

Heya everyone, I'll work a post out soon. I was giving everyone a little time to get anything in before we start moving, and there's still a little left before I make my post. Should have it by the end of the day hopefully, provided I dont get any bad writer's block.
Anybody can give me a compliment, but the only ones that really mean much to me are from my princess.

If it feels like I'm justifying decisions too much, someone tell me.


But, even time I write a word they're signing with all the dashes, and when I don't capitalize names (like with b-u-s-k-e-r), it's just because they're fingerspelling, and you can't exactly capitalize letters when doing that.

And, uh, when I say "fingerspelling", that just means spelling out a word with the sign language alphabet. That's why Ri is getting her finger cramps, lol. Have you seen the ASL alphabet? That does all the letters using just one hand.

Look at this thing. Imagining trying to spell out long names with this, and doing so quick enough for it to not ruin the flow of a sentence. Ugh, lol.

I love how much research and detail you’re putting into how they sign! It’s really interesting
