It is a rich, colorful, and diverse language, which is quite distinct from spoken or written English. This directory is a basic introduction to the vocabulary, grammar, and etiquette of ASL. It begins with numbers and the letters of the alphabet, before moving on to a range of common words and simple phrases. It is a suitable guide for all newcomers to the language, and includes:

  • An introduction to the fourth most commonly used language in the United States.
  • A starter's guide to the principles of ASL.
  • Graphic illustrations showing the handshapes, movements, and facial gestures for each word, phase, letter, or number.
