American Sign Language / ASL

In spoken language, the different sounds created by words and tones of voice (intonation) are the most important devices used to communicate. Sign language is based on the idea that sight is the most useful tool a hard of hearing or deaf person has to communicate and receive information. Thus, ASL uses hand shape, position, and movement; body movements; gestures; facial expressions; and other visual cues to form its words.

ASL is said to be the fourth most commonly used language in the United States. Like any other language, fluency in ASL happens only after a long period of study and practice.
