+ Pointers to remember

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.

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. You will see some examples in video 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).
