Presenting ultra-clear, close-up color photos that depict more than 1,000 signs and their meanings, Barron's Dictionary of American Sign Language is destined to become a basic reference source for all who want to learn more about signing, expand their signing vocabulary, and be certain that they are signing properly. Unlike most other sign language dictionaries, this book simply pairs photos with the words they designate and dispenses with traditional word definitions. Thus, the emphasis is placed on the information that every signer needs: correct formation of hand shapes to eliminate confusion and make communicating in ASL virtually effortless. The photos are supplemented with directional arrows to indicate hand or arm movements plus succinct written descriptions of hand and finger formations. Carefully checked and edited by ASL experts, and including notes on the history of sign language, this volume makes a superb resource for members of the hearing-impaired community, for those who work with them, and for all others who wish to learn the American Sign Language. Approximately 2,000 color photos.
