3. ASL Dictionaries
This dictionary is good because it offers specific uses for each word in ASL. For example, for the word “know” it gives the note “Often times the sign for "KNOW" is done on the cheek. This is not "lazy" (as some people report) this is simply efficient signing--best suited to a casual environment. “. On the negative side, there are no videos for each picture, but a series of still photos.
