Signing For Dummies
American Sign Language (ASL) is something we've all seen Deaf people use in restaurants, hospitals, airports, and throughout the marketplace. The communication is fascinating to watch; to see people sharing ideas by using handshapes and body language is remarkable in a world so defined by sound.
Signing For Dummies gives you a general understanding of the properties of Sign, as well as an understanding of Deaf culture. Designed to act as an introduction or a refresher, the book focuses solely on ASL. Although certainly not the only form of Sign Language, ASL is the most popular in the Deaf community within the United States.
Categorized by subject, this illustrated guide covers grammar and sentence structure, along with the tools to get you going in basic conversation by knowing how to
Introduce and greet people
Ask questions and make small talk
Order food and chat with salespeople
Handle medical emergencies
Talk on the phone
Get around town for fun or business
Although "speaking" American Sign Language (ASL) is mostly a matter of using your fingers, hands, and arms, facial expression and body language are important and sometimes crucial for understanding Signs and their meaning. Signing For Dummies gets the whole body into the action as the fun-to-read resource explores
Signs that look like what they mean
Expression of emotions and feelings
Signing sports and weather
Compass points conversations: Getting or giving directions
Descriptions of where it hurts
Deaf community customs, norms, and culture
Each chapter throughout the book invites you to practice specific Signs in a "Fun & Games" section.
