A coda's perspective...
As the daughter of a deaf father and a hard-of-hearing mother, I was raised on American Sign Language. That doesn't mean I can understand any other versions.

<3 Love it. Except for one minor but a serious error: the inappropriate term "hearing impaired." Should be "Deaf and Hard of Hearing". I'm sure Turkey will pick up around the World Congress of the WFD this summer.

See how cute a four year-old girl describing the shape of a heart. Translating from ASL as: "I want a big heart (describing the heart's shape). Happy Valentine Day!"
