Money makes the world go round. Or is that gravity? I can never remember. What I do know is this. Leroy likes MONEY. In all forms and all CURRENCIES. He likes CASH, CREDIT CARDS, COINS, CHECKS, even the latest CRYPTOCURRENCY. I think the thing he likes most about money is the ability to PURCHASE things. Unsurprisingly, he just got a job as a security for a big BANK with something else in mind. It's good MOOLAH. He has been SAVING UP for years to buy a GOLD bar just so he could bite it like the Olympians do. He would have a lot more FINANCES, but he keeps getting BILLS from these MONEY-GRUBBING utility companies. I guess nothing in this world is FREE. Sometimes he forgets his DOUGH in his jeans and ends up putting it through the wash. Now that's what it's called MONEY LAUNDERING. Hmm, no? Now he's BROKE with only a DOLLAR balance in his account and a small amount of POCKET MONEY in his pocket. So... please wire him FUNDS?

Alphabetical letters: It's useful for 1) a single-letter word (such as A, B, etc.) and 2) very short words (e.g. "to", "he", etc.) to narrow down the words and pages in the list.

For best result, enter a short word in the search box, then select the alphetical letter (and page number if needed), and click on the blue link.

Don't forget to click "All" back when you search another word with a different initial letter.

If you cannot find (perhaps overlook) a word but you can still see a list of links, then keep looking until the links disappear! Sharpening your eye or maybe refine your alphabetical index skill. :)

Add a Word: This dictionary is not exhaustive; ASL signs are constantly added to the dictionary. If you don't find a word/sign, you can send your request (only if a single link doesn't show in the result).

Videos: The first video may be NOT the answer you're looking for. There are several signs for different meanings, contexts, and/or variations. Browsing all the way down to the next search box is highly recommended.

Video speed: Signing too fast in the videos? See HELP in the footer.

ASL has its own grammar and structure in sentences that works differently from English. For plurals, verb inflections, word order, etc., learn grammar in the "ASL Learn" section. For search in the dictionary, use the present-time verbs and base words. If you look for "said", look up the word "say". Likewise, if you look for an adjective word, try the noun or vice versa. E.g. The ASL signs for French and France are the same. If you look for a plural word, use a singular word.
