When asking yes/no questions, should your eyebrows go up or down?
When asking yes/no questions in ASL, the signer's eyebrows should go up. This helps a conversational partner to understand the meaning of the question. This is very similar to the inflection we use at the end of our sentences when asking a question!

List 5 literary devices and give examples for each one. Why are literary devices important in English/Writing?
Simile: "She was as hungry as a cow." Metaphor: "The girl was a rose, beautiful, graceful, and fragrant." Hyperbole: "I have been waiting a million years for this!" Personification: "The car coughed and sputtered as it ran out of gas." Onomatopoeia: "Next to my ear, a bee was buzzing by." Literary devices are the building blocks of literature and create dynamics for readers. Without literary devices, writing would be bland! These devices allow for writers to be creative and make their own unique pieces of art.
