ASL to English Search
The American Sign Language (ASL) dictionary consists of the ASL signs, some variants of these ASL signs, some verb inflections and more, produced and signed by native ASL bilinguals.
This dictionary is not exhaustive (yet). The ASL signs are constantly added to the dictionary. If you don't find the word/sign, you can send your request via email. Browse the alphabetical letters or search a signed word above.
Pointers to remember
Regional variation: there may be regional variations of some ASL words across the regions of North America.
Inflection: most ASL words in the dictionary are a "base", but many of them are grammatically inflectable within ASL sentences.
Contextual meaning: These ASL signs in the dictionary may not mean the same in different contexts and/or ASL sentences.
ASL is very much alive and indefinitely constructable as any spoken language. The best way to use ASL right is to immerse in daily interaction with Ameslan people (ASLers).
