Basic Sentence Types: NEGATION

Following the given example on page 95 (figure 35) when using negation, is the head movement performed following the last sign? Can the head movement be done while signing the entire thought?

Good question. I was practicing this one in both ways. To me it felt more natural and comfortable to wait at the end. MAN (eye brows raised, head slightly forward) HOME (shaking head). Negating throughout the thought confused me. A better explanation could be, it's not until the end where you find out if he's home or not by your affirmation or negation.

Really it is up to you on how you would like to use it. I have always did negation during the entire sign because some people only catch the ending and end up saying "no, What"? They had already forgot what i was talking about. Some may differ and catch everything, but i use it during the sign just to be safe.

I would shake my head during the production of the part of the sentence that's negated, but if you do wait until the end, then I would raise my eyebrows during the entire sentence, then shake my head.

For example, you could sign either:

(1) MAN HOME[neg].

or

(2) MAN-HOME[topic] [shake head].
