Sign Language Interpreting: Learning ASL
A research guide of recommended resources for Sign Language Interpreting
This first dictionary of American Sign Language (ASL) by the leading publisher on sign language and Deaf culture is designed for use by instructors, students and users of ASL. Over 3,000 signs are sorted by the most common equivalent in English, clearly illustrated, and cross-referenced. For beginners, the introduction explains ASL syntax and structure, its place in the Deaf community, and its meaning in Deaf culture. It also includes classifiers, which express whole sentences in a single sign, and English words that are usually finger-spelled as complete words or abbreviations. The fully-searchable DVD included shows native ASL signers demonstrating how to form each of the signs in the dictionary.
This book shows how integrating American Sign Language (ASL) into story time and other educational programs can benefit and entertain all children, whether or not they are hearing impaired, from infancy onward.
