Usage example[edit]

When would you ever have to tell somebody verbally in English that you don't speak American Sign Language? --—This comment was unsigned.

It doesn't have to be verbal but written. I thought it was a useless phrase too but some people disagree. It should have some translations, especially the target language. --Anatoli 00:44, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I think knowing how to sign this would be much more likely to be useful in English-speaking countries than knowing how to say something like "I don't speak Azerbaijani" in Azerbaijani. bd2412 T 00:31, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
I doubt it. Most people who speak sign language would already assume that most others don't. --WikiTiki89 00:37, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, this is probably true. bd2412 T 02:31, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm not particularly knowledgeable about this, but I don't think that's correct... --Yair rand (talk) 01:19, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
There are many places and events where the Deaf community gathers where you wouldn't simply assume someone wouldn't know ASL. Also this entry is still marked rfd. Pengo (talk) 14:02, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
