Good ASL Dictionary! Mar 27, 2008
I'm taking ASL classes and I bought this book because my textbook didn't have the amount of vocabulary I needed to improve in the language. There are still words I can't find in this book, but it's vocabulary is pretty extensive. The illustrations are reinforced with verbage on how the sign is done (which helps). The cross reference of words is also helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone involved in ASL.
Great to learn Mar 26, 2008
I love the book it is great because when you want to find how to sign something as long as you know what it begins with it is easy to look up and figure out how to do it.
Great dictionary Jan 14, 2008
Everything is in there and it is expressed in an easy to read fashion. Great book!
Wonderful Dec 28, 2007
I gave this dictionary to my grandson that is taking sign language and he was so happy with it. He loves sign language and says it is a very complete and well illustrated and explanatory book.
