American Sign Language Dictionary
American Sign Language is different from spoken languages because it is a visual language and it is difficult, if not impossible to learn ASL from a book alone. Static images on a page and text just do not convey the flow and motion of the language. Using Signing Savvy's video dictionary and related tools can help you learn and practice sign language. It is also a great reference to use when you need to know a particular sign. The continually expanding dictionary contains over 10,000 words and phrases. Words may contain one or more sign variations, including primarily ASL signs, but sometimes commonly used SEE or regional variations.
