The Canadian Dictionary of ASL

A workshop, presented by Julie Martin, on How to Get More out of the Canadian ASL Dictionary was held at VCC on January 30th..  This was a very comprehensive and informative workshop which was attended by 40 Deaf and hearing.  We learned so much, not only about the history of the development of this dictionary, but also about ASL semantics.

Published in 2002
"Developed in conjunction with the Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf, this comprehensive new dictionary of American Sign Language (ASL) has over 8700 signs, many unique to Canada. Material for this extensive work has been drawn from many sources and includes input gathered from members of Canada's Deaf community over the past twenty years. The Canadian Dictionary of ASL offers clear illustrations and sign descriptions alongside English definitions, making it a valuable reference for Deaf and hearing users alike. Authoritative and up-to-date, The Canadian Dictionary of ASL will prove to be the standard reference for years to come."
