Description
The fourth-most common language in America is ASL, American Sign Language. It's a complex system that uses signs made with the hands (as well as different facial expressions and body postures) to communicate. Learn the most commonly signed words in ASL in 1,000 Words to Sign. 1,000 Words to Sign is divided into two sections: an introduction to ASL, followed by a vocabulary section. Arranged alphabetically, the vocabulary section is organized by common themes, including people, home, food, school, work, and nature. Each word is clearly illustrated with two to four photographs showing the beginning, middle, and end positions of the sign, with instructional arrows to indicate movement. To make the learning process complete, this book comes with an instructional DVD to demonstrate real-time signing, with the option to slow down the action to ensure absolute clarity/ Photographs feature Deaf Native signers for total authenticity and credibility within the ASL community. Written by one of the most respected experts on American Sign Language, Geoffrey Poor, Associate Professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Rochester Institute of Technology, New York. Makes an indispensable resource for anyone wishing to communicate using ASL.
