Overview

One of the most important things to learn in ASL is the American Manual Alphabet - otherwise known as Fingerspelling. Fingerspelling allows you to spell out words in American Sign Language.

There are many times when you will use fingerspelling in ASL. It is actually used frequently to augment the standard set of signs. Fingerspelling is used for:
- Proper Names
- Brands (like a company name)
- Titles
- Places
- And - most significantly, for words that don't have signs

So, what words don't have signs? Many of them. Often times, when a word is unusual or used rarely, there isn't an established sign for the word. So, if you want to talk about flowers, you are fine. If you want to discuss a Dendrobium Orchid you have to use finger spelling.

This book is designed to show you the basic 26 letters used in fingerspelling. To get additional practice there are 100 proper names listed with the book. Test your knowledge of Fingerspelling by tabbing through the pages and recognizing each letter. Then, see if were able to understand the name!

For more practice, each name is listed, followed by the proper fingerspelling. This allows you to test your ability to spell out proper names!

Have fun, and remember to practice, practice, practice!

New Edition for 2013!
* New "Review" Section that includes about 9 hand signs on each page to make practice easier!
* Added basic guidelines for Fingerspelling
