What does your mother do on Easter Sunday?
What is your name?
What is your phone number?
What is your teacher's name?
Where are you learning sign language?
Where do you live?
Where do you rank among your siblings?
This phrase is basically asking the question, "How old are you in relation to your siblings" (i.e. "Are you the oldest, middle, youngest, etc. child?"). The question is asked this way because your non-dominant hand is used to index siblings and children in order of age. The phrase is signed here as: "BROTHER SISTER, YOU POINT(non-dominant index)?" with "BROTHER SISTER" signed with the topical facial expression and with "YOU POINT(non-dominant index)?" signed with the wh-word question facial expression (eyebrows down).

You sign very fluently.
This is signed as "YOU SIGN-FLUENT". The "SIGN-FLUENT" sign is very ASL. There is no direct-word translation of this sign to English. This sign is used to describe someone's signing as fast and smooth. You can create this sign by starting with both of your hands in the the S-handshape, opening your hands into the 5-handshape, wiggling your fingers slightly, and closing them into the S-handshape again. Depending on your facial expressions and body movements, this sign can mean "FLUENT,""very-FLUENT," or "exceptionally-FLUENT," for example.
