Today, we will learn how to say “life” in sign language. As you know, there are different sign languages; but today, we will only talk about BSL or British Sign Language.

According to Sign Health, British Sign Language is the leading sign language used by deaf people in the UK (BSL). It has its own grammar, syntax, and lexicons, just like English, and is a unique mixture of hand gestures, facial expressions, and body language.

With that said, let’s dive into our main discussion: how to say Life in British Sign Language?

“Life” in Sign Language

Before we start, you must understand that sign languages are not inspired by spoken languages. As opposed to the spoken language of a nation, sign languages are formed based on accessibility and social contact.

So let’s get back to our main topic now.
