Overview

Barron's Dictionary of American Sign Language by Geoffrey Poor M.S.


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.

this book is really good if you are eager to learn sign language. this book helped me a lot so I'm pretty sure it will help you if you put your mind to learning sign language. although if you just want to learn a little then this book isn't for you. however if you just want to learn a little bit of sign language then there are simple sign language book for you so dont get this book if you just want to know the basics because then it's just a wast of your money. love, yamilex gomez
