It is also a great reference to use when you need to know a particular sign.

American Sign Language (ASL) is the primary language of Deaf people in Deaf communities and Deaf families across the United States and Canada. It's also a fast-growing. popular second language or foreign language for hearing people in North America.

  7. Directional signs are signs that describe both the action and who performed the action. By changing the directionality of the sign, the meaning is changed. So when you are describing who helped whom, you change the direction of the sign. When signing HELP (as in, "someone helping me") the sign starts away from the body and moves toward the body. The motion of starting away and moving in toward the body, or toward “me,” represents that someone is helping me (the signer).

  8. American Sign Language is constantly adapting to the needs of Deaf people, our families, and those with whom we associate.
