QUESTION 0003:
How do you write the sign for "TALK" in ASL? It is a directional verb. How
do you show the directionality?

ANSWER 0003:
The arrows determine the direction of the sign. In this case, the fingers
are pointing up, but the direction fluctuates depending on the arrows.
Diagonal arrows show diagonal "directionality".
