Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This enjoyable book first introduces sign language and communication, follows with a history of sign languages in general, then delves into the structure of American Sign Language (ASL). Later chapters outline the special skills of fingerspelling and assess artificial sign systems and their net worth. Language in Motion also describes the process required to learn sign language, then explains how to use it to communicate in the Deaf community. Appendices featuring the manual alphabets of three countries complete this enriching book.
