The Canadian Dictionary of ASL offers clear illustrations and sign descriptions alongside English definitions, making it a valuable reference for Deaf and hearing users alike. Features of the Dictionary include: easy-to-understand illustrations for every sign; specific written instructions for forming the sign; definitions, parts of speech, usage notes; tips on how to use the signs in visual conversation; and regional variations of signs. Separate sections are included on: fingerspelling, ASL handshapes, numbers, pronouns, time concepts, and geographic place names.(OWN is frequently fingerspelled, particularly for emphasis in a sentence such as this: Do you rent your home or do you own it?) ...
