This unique ASL dictionary is the only one of its kind that links thousands of signs to sentences that show how they change, important due to the way ASL signs change (inflect) from sentence to sentence to mean different things. The CD not only features 2,700 ASL signs and their English equivalents, but also shows most of them in sentences to illustrate how the signs change to show different meanings. There are also English translations of the sentences. Now users are able to see the inflections and learn how they work, gaining a better understanding of ASL.
