Why would the answer to "what is the most detailed way to sign" be "SEE" because it includes all the English suffixes and prefixes? I would guarantee you that every Deaf person who uses ASL would disagree with this poorly worded question 100% because you can be VERY detailed in the entirely complete and independent language that ASL is.

Ryan: your explanation of pidgin is extremely lacking. A pidgin is a linguistic concept in which you combine two languages: the vocabulary of one and the grammar of another but do not have a unique language in itself. PSE is difficult to do accurately (for lack of a better word) because often the plurals and tenses and mass nouns are lost, aka all those things you think "don't matter" but do. This video needs to be updated asap.
