about

The most comprehensive alphabetized guide to American Sign Language (ASL) available today.
 
Unlike other signing books, which organize by "categories," the Visual Dictionary is arranged in a straightforward, easy-to-use dictionary format.

Inside you’ll find special features offering a fast, simple approach to the art of signing, including:
• More than 1,350 signs -- arranged alphabetically with directions on how to use each sign
• Detailed illustrations -- showing precise hand positions and exact movements
• Memory aids -- to assist in recalling how to make each sign
• Sample sentences -- to clarify grammatical usage
• Numbers -- from one to one million, including monetary signs
• Fingerspelling -- a vital tool for communicating words for which there are no signs, or for when the sign has not yet been learned
• Helpful hints -- suggestions and tips for easier signing
• A comprehensive index -- with all entries and their synonyms for easy cross-referencing
 
Authors Rod R. Butterworth and Mickey Flodin have written many widely used signing books, including Signing Made Easy and The Pocket Dictionary of Signing.
Mickey Flodin is the author of Signing Everyday Phrases, Signing for Kids, Signing is Fun, Signing Illustrated, and co-author, with Rod R. Butterworth, of The Perigee Visual Dictionary of Signing, The Pocket Dictionary of Signing, and Signing Made Easy.
