From Reference & Research Book News
327 new signs and a DVD-ROM have been added to this second edition of Tennant (former mathematics teacher, no academic affiliations) and Brown’s (professionally certified ASL interpreter) American Sign Language dictionary. The over 1900 entries are organized by 40 basic handshapes. Also included is an index of alphabetized English glosses referencing the corresponding ASL signs; the dictionary is thus of interest to both learners of ASL, and signers.
Richard A. Tennant is a former mathematics teacher who has studied American Sign Language extensively and resides in Acra, NY.
Marianne Gluszak Brown is an American Sign Language Teacher’s Association (ASLTA) professionally certified interpreter and a child of deaf adults (Coda) who works in Palisades, NY.
