ASL Dictionary


     A living language evolves to meet the ever changing needs of the people who use it. Lexicography, (the making of dictionaries), is like painting sunsets. By the time the paint dries the subject has changed.  American Sign Language is constantly adapting to the needs of Deaf people, our families, and our associates.
     As time goes on, this dictionary will become more sophisticated and include advanced features. For now, it serves its purpose of providing a quick and easy reference for my students.
     To use this dictionary, at the top of this page click the letter of the word you are seeking.  That will load the links into the left hand side of the page.  Then scroll down to the word you are looking for and click on it.
