Martian Sign Language 火星文手语

Just like the hip young people who use "Martian" (newly formed words) online, hearing-impaired kids have slang of their own.

就像时下年轻人流行在网络上使用『火星文』(一种新形成的文字),新新人类的听障生也有自己的『火星文手语』。

Chiu Man-ying, a teacher at the Taipei School for the Hearing Impaired, says that hearing-impaired students invent signs of their own. These function as a kind of shorthand and build bonds among communities of peers.

台北市立启聪学校邱满英老师指出,即使是听障生,也会发明一些只在他们之间流通的共同符号,一则可以很快理解,再者代表一种同侪间的感情和默契。

Take the sign they use for "embarrassed" for example. The original signs involved holding both hands clasped together beside the mouth while acting like you didn't know what to do with yourself, or using the fingers of both hands to suggest the gnashing of teeth. Then another sign emerged, drawn from the popular 1990s cartoon Chibi Maruko. In the cartoon, three lines would appear on Chibi Maruko's face every time she found herself in an awkward situation. It was cute, and hearing-impaired students adopted it, making three fingers their sign for "embarrassed."

以『尴尬』为例,最早期的比法是双手抓在嘴边,作出手足无措状,或双手手指作出咬牙状。直到10多年前电视节目《樱桃小丸子》火红,小丸子每遇到尴尬时,脸上就挂起『3条线』,可爱模样让听障生有样学样,解释『尴尬』时就用3根手指(食指、中指及无名指)比出『3条线』。

Chiu discovered another sign for "embarrassed" five years ago while taking a group of hearing-impaired painters to Rhode Island for a Taiwan Day event. On the flight there, one of the painters arranged his thumb, index finger, and middle finger like the prongs of a plug and stabbed them forward like the beak of a crow, and made a "caw, caw, caw" sound. Watching him, Chiu realized that the younger generation of hearing-impaired had invented yet another way of expressing "embarrassed." The sign referred to the crow that flies across the screen during awkward moments in the TV version of Chibi Maruko.

5年前,邱满英带着听障画家前往美国罗得岛参加『台湾日』活动,在飞机上发现一名听障生用拇指、食指和中指,像三叉夹子般往前比出『电视版乌鸦ㄚㄚㄚ』手势,以此代表『尴尬』,她才发现,『尴尬』的手语在听障新人类中又有了新解。这个手势指的是电视版《樱桃小丸子》中,在尴尬的时刻乌鸦会飞过屏幕的样子。
