ASL in Action

American Sign Language

8/22/16

Welcome to American Sign Language. American Sign Language is the third most widely used language.

 

 A common misconception is that ASL is visual equivalency for English, written or spoken.  It is not.  The differences are significant. For new students, it is important to avoid reliance on English syntax.

 

ASL is not pantomime.  ASL is not universal, understood by all signers in the world. 

 

ASL has its own syntax and grammar. It is a visual-gestural language.
