"The unique feature of this dictionary is that it is organized by handshape rather than by alphabetical order. An American Sign Language learner can look up an unfamiliar sign by looking for the handshape rather than by looking up the word in an alphabetical English glossary. At the same time, an English speaker can look up a sign for a specific word by looking at the Index of English Glossaries located at the end of the dictionary. The introduction includes a history of sign language in the United States. Detailed instructions explain the organization of the handshape sections and the ordering of signs. The illustrations are clear and are described in terms of configuration, location, movement, orientation, and nonmanual markers".--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999.

Annotation It was an undergraduate student who started Wilcox (linguistics and signed language interpreting, U. of New Mexico-Albuquerque) on her quest several years ago by asking for a book on the subject. She studied theory of metaphor and its manifestation in various verbal languages, and here applies what she learned to a non-verbal language. She draws on opposing linguistic theories to show how the cognitive process experienced by deaf people change and enrich signed language. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
