Gallaudet Dictionary of American Sign Language

Created by an unparalleled board of experts led by renowned ASL linguist and poet Clayton Valli, The Gallaudet Dictionary of American Sign Language represents the culmination of more than five years of meticulous assessment and labor. More than 3,000 illustrations arrayed in this volume display the most useful selection of signs to be found in any single ASL reference resource. Each sign illustration, including depictions of fingerspelling when appropriate, incorporates a complete list of English synonyms. A full, alphabetized English index enables users to cross-reference words and signs throughout the entire volume. The full-color DVD included with this dictionary features a diverse group of native ASL signers demonstrating how to form each of the 3,075 signs. Fully searchable, users can view a sign and quickly go to its synonyms. This and the many other exclusive features in The Gallaudet Dictionary of American Sign Language combine to make it the outstanding ASL reference for all instructors, students, and users of ASL.

The American Sign Language Phrase Book

The American Sign Language Phrase Book functions as both an instant reference tool and a long-term study guide for those interested in understanding and utilizing ASL. Lou Fant, host of the Emmy-nominated, nationally syndicated sign language TV show "Off Hand," wrote many books on sign language, including Say It with Hands and Intermediate Sign Language.

Random House American Sign Language Dictionary

Elaine Costello has compiled over 5000 signs in this massive dictionary. Each sign is illustrated with a full-torso picture showing hand configuration and movement, and both the common and alternate meanings are given where necessary. Arranged like a typical dictionary, this work is easy to use and very detailed. Even the end sheets provide ready reference to the manual alphabet and more common handshapes. Sign language, now the fourth most commonly used language, has changed in response to a more enlightened time, and these changes are evident here. Not only have the signs for homosexual, China, and Japan been updated, for instance, but new words reflecting the computer age, such as disk and byte, have been included. Of immense value to the nonhearing and the hearing alike; highly recommended for all libraries.

Best Amplified Hearing Impaired Phones

Telephone conversations are one of the most common forms of communication used today. For those who are hard of hearing, hearing impaired phones are essential for a clear and concise phone call. A telephone for hearing impaired individuals will typically feature an amplified ringer, adjustable volume settings higher than a regular telephone and many even incorporate a flashing light. Amplified hearing impaired phones range in price between $50 and $200 and offer a wide range of features.

Being hearing impaired can make telephone conversations with friends and family very difficult and frustrating; the resources listed above for hearing impaired phones can provide you with the clarity and amplified sound you need to participate in a problem-free phone conversation.
