A complete pocket dictionary of American Sign Language

Over 4,500 fully illustrated, up-to-date signs

From basic hand shapes to fully illustrated and described signs, Random House Webster’s Concise American Sign Language Dictionary offers a comprehensive and up-to-date treasury of signs. Whether you are a novice seeking “survival signs” for basic communication or an experienced user fluent in ASL and looking to enlarge your vocabulary, you cannot find a more complete, easy-to-use sign language dictionary.

This authoritative reference includes:

• Over 4,500 signs — more than other ASL pocket dictionaries
• Detailed full-torso illustrations
• Precise, easy-to-follow instructions for performing each sign
• Signs for new and technical terms
• Hints for remembering signs
• And much more

“Dr. Costello’s work establishes ASL as a major force in the future of communications for both the deaf and the hearing.”
—Richard Dysart, trustee, Gallaudet University

“This scrupulously researched book solidifies the position of American Sign Language as a rich, vibrant, living language. It is a welcome addition to the shelf of anyone interested in the wonders of ASL.”
—Lou Ann Walker, author of A Loss for Words: The Story of Deafness in a Family
