    I’m noticing some differences in signs by different people.
    “outside” – let’s go outside and play.
    I’m also wondering if signs have changed since I learned them, 45 years ago?


    ADMIN – Hi Melissa,

    Baby signs are modified for simplicity. No big changes in adult sign language that I can recall.
