My first ASL course has been over for two weeks, but I'm more interested in it then ever, to the point I found myself staying up very late watching youtube clips of famous deaf people's speeches. I don't understand much yet, but with the help of interpretation or close captions, I've been learning a great deal. Guess I'm taking more classes come September - can't wait!! :)
<= 🙆Sundanese script the most beautiful script and language in the world ! ❤❤❤
Historical facts from the 5th century until now have shown that there were seven scripts used in the west javanese area :
Pallawa, pranagari,Sunda Kuno (Old Sundanese),javanese (Carakan),arabic(Pegon), Cacarakan and Latin !
Our culture is perfect !
It’s funny how living on the other side of the world from your hometown can help you to discover more about your roots. There are parts of my identity that are so intricately intertwined with my Asian cultural upbringing that it’s hard to pick them apart and write about them in detail. However, according to my personal observations and opinions, I will try and explain a few aspects of Asian culture that is commonly seen.
First and foremost: Rice.
Rice is my first love when it comes to any food. It is an integral part of my diet and has always been since I was a toddler. Rice is not an accessary to the overall meal but the central foundation on which the entire meal depends upon. My childhood memories and my eating behaviour patterns are intimately entwined with my dependence and love for rice.
Secondly: Language honorifics.
Honorifics is a system of speech and grammar used in a lot of Asian languages to show respect to the person (a superior, or an elder) you are directly speaking to. This was a hard one to write about because I wasn’t even aware of the fact that I have been using honorifics all my life. Language is culture. And it has a funny way of getting interspersed with every aspect of our identity.
The rule of thumb in most Asian cultures is that if someone is older than you, then they are almost definitely more experienced than you are, about life in general. Since I'm from India, there are certain behaviour patterns I exhibit around people elder to me. For example: at a dinner table if you're the youngest one, you should wait for the older members of the family to start eating first and then have the first bite. Or if you meet your grandparents or uncles and aunts, one should bow and touch their feet as a sign of respect.

Orr Menirom, "Limited Speech Holds Endless Misunderstanding," Still from Single Channel HD (2013)
Menirom's 2013 work utilizes audio and video editing to alter a television interview with Noam Chomsky. In doing so, the work transforms the original content into a dream sequence revealing the subconscious of Chomsky and the interviewer, exploring the bounds of language and communicable speech.
Menirom's most recent work is on view at the gallery through next week!
Isn't this interesting. The government of Canada's official languages Act requires that French and English languages are to be equal in content and character size on signage.
Under the French language signage rules, the Government of Québec's requirement is that French be "markedly predominant" on all bilingual signage.
Case in point. Welcome to @nordikspanature. #spa#relaxationtime#signage#bilingual#language#languageact#act
"Self acceptance is hard for many of us. There is a voice inside that is constantly judging, first ourselves and then others...Because we have learned to believe negativity is more realistic, it appears more real than any positive voice. Once we begin to replace negative thinking with positive thinking, it becomes utterly clear that, far from being realistic, negative thinking is absolutely disenabling...The more we accept ourselves, the better prepared we are to take responsibility in all areas of our lives. When we are positive we not only accept and affirm ourselves, we are able to accept and affirm others." - bell hooks, "all about love" • #retraining#rereading#practicing#love#language#awareness#self#forgiveness#soul#abundance#integrity#gratitude#creativity#knowledge
