Cardinal numbers are the numbers you use for counting: one, two, three...and so on. Ordinal Numbers are used to indicate position: first, second, third, fourth...and so on. In ASL, ordinal numbers 1 through 9 are done similar to cardinal numbers except they use a little twist of the wrist.Why is ASL considered a language?
Sign languages are based on the idea that vision is the most useful tool a deaf person has to communicate and receive information. ASL is a language completely separate and distinct from English. It contains all the fundamental features of language—it has its own rules for pronunciation, word order, and complex grammar.
