Now, the signs from the bestselling American Sign Language Handshape Dictionary are available on DVD. The Handshape Dictionary organizes more than 1,400 ASL signs by 40 basic handshapes, and the new DVD features a diverse cast of native signers forming all of them. Each sign depicted on the DVD includes a complete list of English glosses and synonyms from The Handshape Dictionary for reference.

This fully searchable, full-color DVD enables users to survey each handshape group for a specific sign. They not only can find the corresponding English words for the sign, they will benefit from the added dimension of seeing exactly how the sign is formed from beginning to end. They can repeat a sign on the DVD as necessary to learn precisely how to form it themselves. The American Sign Language Handshape Dictionary DVD presents students, sign language teachers, and deaf and hearing people alike with a perfect complement to The Handshape Dictionary to enhance communication skills in both ASL and English.

Richard Tennant, a former mathematics teacher who has studied American Sign Language extensively, resides in Acra, NY.

Marianne Gluszak Brown is an American Sign Language Teacherís Association (ASLTA) professionally certified interpreter and a child of deaf parents (coda) who works in Palisades, NY.

ISBN 978-1-56368-337-4, fully searchable, full-color DVD featuring 1,400 ASL signs
