U.S. Insurance Agents offers this article with many links to practical resources about ASL. This article explains that ASL is a language unto itself and should not be mistaken as a form of English. People who are learning sign language must familiarize themselves with the proper grammar associated with it, just as they would with any other language. It is the sign language that is used primarily in the United States and in parts of Canada and is only one of many different forms of sign language used around the world. To some degree, ASL may also be used to teach babies to communicate before they are able to speak. Information and resources are included in this article on the following topics: Linguistics of Sign, Learning the Alphabet and Numbers, Forming Sentences, Popular Phrases, and Interpreting.
