Learn the most commonly signed words in American Sign Language (ASL), the fourth-most common language in America. In 1,000 Words to Sign, signs are described in written words, and demonstrated in color pictures. To make the learning process complete, the book comes with an instructional DVD to demonstrate real-time signing, with the option to slow down the action to ensure absolute clarity.
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.
Photographs feature Deaf Native signers. 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.
