The Complete Idiot's Guide to Conversational Sign Language Illustrated
By Carole Lazorisak, Dawn DonohueBook - 2004
The Complete Idiot s Guide to Conversational Sign Language Illustrated teaches readers how to communicate in a variety of everyday situations. Readers will not only learn grammar and signs, but will actually learn how to use them in key, common phrases. Rather than focusing on American Sign Language (ASL), the difficult-to-learn formal language of the Deaf community that has little in common with English, readers will learn the hybrid known as Pidgin Sign English (PSE) - signed English (applying signs to the English language) and ASL - which is the language used most often when hearing and deaf people communicate with one another.
