Today, we’re going to learn the word “stupid” in sign language. Depending on the sentence, it can be used as an adjective.

For example:

“Your sister wouldn’t have asked such a stupid question.”

“Stupid” is used as an adjective in this example.

If you just speak English, you wouldn’t be able to fly to Spain or Japan and start conversing with locals there. The various forms of sign language used around the world share this similarity. Each is a unique language with its own culture and history.

Every place with a unique sign language is different from both other sign languages and the regional spoken language. As there are deaf communities, there are an equal number of sign languages, some of which are national and others which are regional.

With that said, today we will only discuss BSL or British Sign Language.

To get a better understanding of BSL check out our blog, “British Sign Language Alphabet“.

So let’s begin.

3. Now make a fist of your right hand and place it under the left hand.
4. Say the word “stupid” while you are signing.


So that’s how we can say the word “stupid” in sign language. Some of us choose to sign only when the situation calls for it. For example, some signers may just do so at a signing class or with other members of their deaf group. Practice makes perfect, as we all know; therefore, the more practice you can get in front of people, the better! Getting involved in deaf culture is another excellent way to improve your skills automatically.
