Hello Stefan and Ingvild!
Thanks for sharing your way of writing "Are you Deaf?" in Norwegian  
and German Sign Languages!

The Norwegian Sign Language is quite different, but the German Sign  
Language appears to be similar to the American Sign Language in this  

It is interesting that the Norwegian sign for Deaf has one movement,  
where in German and American Sign Language it has two...

And the mouth position is very clear, Stefan...thank you!

Val ;-)
