ASL and English Grammar Comparison

Published in 2013, ASL ~ English Grammar: A Comparative Linguistic Handbook is unique in that it compares and contrasts the phonological, morphological, syntactical and semantic structures of ASL and English in a practical, user-friendly way. The presenter will touch on major topics discussed throughout the 245-page book, including grammatical structures, non-manual signals, mouth morphemes, classifiers, lexicalized-based signs, abbreviations and ASL idioms. A thousand paired examples from both ASL and English makes this handbook useful for coursework at all ASL levels.
