The word “Bad” is used to describe anyone or anything that a person might not like or find fault with. The word “Bad” can be used as an adjective, noun, or adverb.

Now, let’s move on to the actual image and video presentations.

Bad in Sign Language

Before we dive into our main topic, the following points must be clarified:

  • Unlike other visual languages like ASL or American Sign Language, BSL (British Sign Language) signs are done with two hands. Despite they speak the same language, their sign languages are different.
  • You will come across the terms “dominant hand” and “non-dominant hand” when learning BSL. If you are right-handed, this is your dominant hand. Your non-dominant hand is your left hand. The base hand is a common name for it.
