Reviews - What do customers think about American Sign Language Concise Dictionary: Revised Edition?

Great tool for the hearing world.  Mar 16, 2006
There are so many people among us that are either hard of hearing or deaf, that its almost a shame that the hearing world doesn't and can't communicate with them. If the hearing world finds out how easy it is to learn sign language, and how much the hearing world can profit from this skill, every hearing person would learn how to sign. There are so many tools available to make sign language easy and fun to learn, that any excuse not to learn is invalid. This is a great tool for parents to yell at their kids in church to be quiet and pay attention, and no-one can hear you. Or tell your loved one some sweet nothings accorss a room and no one can hear nor understand you, but him / her. This also boosts the self esteem of a deaf person, knowing that someone cares enough to communicate with them. How would a hearing person feel if he / she or God forbid one of their kids suddenly loses their hearing? As a parent of a deaf child, with no other family member with deafness, ever, it is very frustrating when no one in the world around you can communicate with your child. Sign language is a lot easier than learning Spanish, German or any other spoken language. This particular book is a fantastic tool for ANYONE to pick up sign language in a hurry. I have used several prior editions and sent this latest edition to someone who wants to enhance their skills. I recommend this book for learing and enhancing a skill anyone can learn.
very eaasy and comprehensive...  Oct 21, 2002
Explains why the signs are what they are, making them much easier to remember! Has been very helpful in learning signing with my 12 month old!
Buy America Sign Language Dictionary by Random House instead  Dec 29, 2001
Very poor book. Even the manual alphabet in the front of the book is not accurate. The book is missing many vital, yet basic words required for conversation. Your money will be much better spent on Random Houses American Sign Lanugage Dictionary.
From a Deaf perspective  Dec 9, 2001
American Sign Language Concise Dictionary
by Martin L.A. Sternberg

This is an excellent resource guide that is easy to use. It is one of the few ASL books that have been widely published and is ASL centered. I have a copy and carry it always with me.

Great Refrence for ASL!  May 15, 2001
This book is an absolut neccessity for the ASL student. There are signs for nearly everyword you can think of! This book helped me converse with my deaf friends comfortably. I know have a greater knowledge of signs from just about any topic. It is a must for those wishing to learn sign language or have any deaf friends or relatives. It is concise and gives accurate definitions for the sign and the meaning of the word.
