The Comprehensive Signed English Dictionary

Harry Bornstein, Karen L. Saulnier,

“This would be a very useful home reference tool for deaf children and their families. It should be made available in public and school libraries, and schools for the deaf.”


“This dictionary should be a welcome addition as a home and classroom reference tool.”
