Today we are taking a look to find out how to say the word ‘star’ in sign language.

Instead of using spoken words, sign language is a visual language that is represented through hand gestures. Hands, eyes, facial emotions, and movements are all used as visual clues in this language.

Although many hearing people also use sign language, it is primarily used by those who are deaf or hard of hearing. The grammar and structural rules of sign language have developed over time, much like those of any spoken language.

As you know that there are different sign languages used by different regions, but today we will only discuss BSL or British Sign Language.
