excellent for the hearing

this asl dictionary is great. i bought it because i have AI students at one of the campuses i work at. the book itself was inexpensive, a good size (smaller than letter paper) & weighs almost nothing. the illustrations are clear (black & white) & the explanations of positions of hands are concise. the words are listed with the different tenses & meanings of words & include a phonetic transcription & brief definition so as to use the correct sign. i completely recommend this dictionary to anyone wanting to learn sign--hearing or nonhearing.

Conceptually accurate and easy to understand

Since I have a Deaf daughter, I am sometimes asked to recommend a book to help interested persons learn sign language. Although any book can only be implimented to supplement good videos or working with a skilled signer, this one definitely will assist users in recalling signs or learning new ones. The descriptive definition acts as a helpful word picture of the sign. The information also shows users the different English "words" one sign can represent, so they can be sure they are choosing conceptually-accurate signs to convey what they wish to communicate (think of the many uses of the word "run"). Helpful also - and often very necessary - is the use of more than one drawing to show the progression of the sign, clarifying the written explanation. And since expression is vital in signing, the facial drawings can provide nuances that are important for clear communication. The American Sign Language Dictionary is one than can be depended on to show the correct ASL signs, instead of English-based ones that find their way into many sign language dictionaries. It's a great resource!
