How do you sign the year 20XX?

(x-posted to deaf)


Hi everyone,

I've heard the jury is still out on how to sign the years 2000-2999. So here's a non-scientific survey to see if there are preferences out there in the Deaf community! I know there may also be changes when we get to the year 2100, or in other years, but I thought I'd keep the survey short. Please add your comments if you have any!

Thanks,
Drew
