ISBN: 9780764160899 ISBN10: 0764160893.
Written by: G S Poor.
Approximately 2,000 color photos.
Ultra-clear, close-up color photos that depict more than 1,000 signs and their meanings.

Where appropriate, the photos are supplemented with directional arrows to indicate hand or arm movements, and all photos include succinct written descriptions of hand and finger formations

ISBN: 9781563684449 ISBN10: 1563684446.
Hardcover w/DVD edition, 456 pp.
This reference dictionary organizes signs by handshape rather than alphabetically by English word order.

Multiple meanings of a single sign also allow deaf people to increase their English vocabulary. Each individual sign presented in this dictionary is illustrated, paired with English-equivalent meaning(s), and described in terms of the five parameters. Features More than 1,900 Sign Illustrations, Including 327 New Signs, DVD Showing How to Form Signs, Complete Index of English Vocabulary for All Signs, An Introduction to Deaf Culture and ASL Structure
