Sign language in the can be situationally OVS. In normal conversation, to
emphatically ask for a specific book, one might sign:
/book there book want I/
or to clarify a request
/tea want tea you/ with raised eyebrows
/what want you/ frowning during signing "what".
Formal ASL in a classroom is of course much more standard, but
conversational ASL is much more fluid re: structure.
