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 .
