syntax: inflextional affix/fuperlatives

Page 404:
Table 5.2
I understand inflectional terms that deal with time, but what about progressive- ing as in the word hoping, hopping, arriving? Would this be satisfired by signing the following?:

NOW, M-A-R-Y ARRIVE

Does the word arriving, however, referr to the future?


How does ASL deal with the comparative adjective (er) as in faster, taller, smarter?

How does ASL deal with superlative adjectives (est), as in tallest, fastest, smartest?

In asl an an example of er is tossing older you sign old then the (er) is a sign that is similar to girl but goes in the opposite direction
Est can be displayed using facial expression as well as ex. Signing fast then advanced to show it is not the regular fast
So these signs are not modified. The sign that would come after the adjective is how you show the intensity

In ASL, to show something that happens progressively, if it happens in the past, you can use repetition with a slight circular movement:

(1) PHONE RING RING ("The phone was ringing").

If it happens in the immediate present, no inflection is necessary:

(2) PHONE RING ("The phone is ringing").

If it happens in the future, you can use repetition with a slight circular movement:

(3) NEXT-WEEK SUNDAY RAIN RAIN WILL ("It will be raining [all day] next Sunday").
