Publishers Description
Appearing first in 1981, this dictionary remains the largest and most comprehensive book of sign language ever published. Now, completely revised and expanded, American Sign Language features:

More than 7,000 sign entries, plus cross-references

More than 12,000 illustrations

2,000 more signs than any other ASL dictionary, including dozens of signs that have only recently come into usage

Arranged alphabetically to enhance usability

Other features include a pronunciation guide for English language glosses and a foreword to the original edition by the late Mary E. Switzer, United States Commissioner of Vocational Rehabilitation.

American Sign Language (ASL) is the third most frequently used language in the United States after English and Spanish. ASL has its own distinct grammar and syntax. The entries appearing herein represents signs, not words, and the illustrations of the hand, arm, and facial expressions will aid the reader in forming the signs.

This book is indispensable to deaf people and their relatives, friends, and associated. Social workers, otologists, hearing and speech therapists, audiologists, and rehabilitation workers have long considered this book a major addition to their libraries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
ASL Dictionary  Apr 6, 2008
I love this book. It has been a tremendous help to me. I am taking an ASL course and I do habilitation w/ a deaf child. This book is very valuable to my work. I would highly recommend it.
The Most Comprehensive ASL Dictionary Available  Feb 24, 2006
I have owned many sign language dictionaries in the past 10+ years. All of them have fallen short of my needs. Martin L. A. Sternberg's unabridged ASL Dictionary is simply the most comprehesive, invaluable resource available. I work with children who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and I always recommend this dictionary for parents, so that they can look up just about any word they may ever need to know.
This is an outdated source now.  May 6, 2005
A little fact. ASL is still rather young and signs you learn today can still be modified by tomorrow. It is a good source to go to if you need to know a certain sign, but the problem is it may not have the sign you want. For example, if you want to find the sign for the color red, you are better off going to ask someone, because it most likely does not have it. It is very weak when it comes to number and color signs. This book is too outdated if you are a perfectionist, go somewhere else. It is only a dictionary, it will not teach you proper ASL grammer or deaf culture.

If you are a deaf person thinking I am a know-it-all hearie, well I am a hearing impaired person.
Can't Recommend This ASL Dictionary  Jun 1, 2004
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this book. More than 60 percent of the signs I got out of it were rejected as wrong or outdated by Deaf persons and ASL teachers and interpreters. it was a big disappointment, because of the cost. Better choice is the "Handshape Dictionary."
Top Choice for Thorough Vocabulary  Apr 8, 2004
If you're simply looking for a good dictionary with a variety of regional signs and lots of entries, this is the best bet! It has over 7,000 entries and 12,000 illustrations. Some of the illustrations aren't the easiest to understand, but if you already have a basic knowledge of sign language, you can't beat this book! Not only does it have many English gloss entries, but it shows you various signs for the same gloss, which ones are cosidered vulgar, which ones are distinctly regional, and gives you some synonyms that can be used with the same gloss. A must-have addition to any serious signer's library!
