Editorial Reviews


"Written for the general reader with an interest in any of the main topics covered, the book provides introductory linguistic background via a detailed description of American Sign Language and an account of the recent emergence of a new sign language in Nicaragua; myths regarding sign language are debunked; and the demographics and culture of American Sign Language users are outlined."

"This book would be of interest to anyone who wants to understand more about human languages and how the brain processes those languages, although knowledge of ASL and linguistics (especially phonology and morphology) would be helpful. As a second language learner and educator who has spent over 25 years challenged by the nuances and intricacies of ASL, I can honestly say I was fascinated with this book. Some parts were a succinct review of what we already know, some parts presented cutting-edge information, and some parts were quite challenging. Ultimately, however, the book made me think about what I already know and encouraged me to continue exploring how the brain processes language."
