    Same way we learn oral languages: from people who use it

    I don't sign, but I have some online friends who are deaf.

    Usually the first thing they learned is that people and things have names, same as a hearing child learns. They learn the signs for those names.

    They learn verbs they need as young children, like give, want, eat, sleep, go, etc. They add adjective like big, pretty, etc. and relationship words like over, to, and from.

    So like a toddler, they can sign the equivalent of Daddy, I want a big cookie. Give it to me.

    The process is very like learning speech, I understand. If someone who is deaf has more to explain or add, I'm all ears.
