Dear Amy: Can you help me learn more about sign language?
— Sage, Dayton, Ohio
Dear Sage: American Sign Language, or ASL, has been around for quite some time. The idea of non-verbal communication has existed since the 5th century B.C.! Sign language has come a long way, and now people all over the world can communicate using it. You can spell out words with the ASL alphabet or you can sign expressions and words. To learn about the history of ASL, check out http://f99.middlebury.edu/RU232A/STUDENTS/elefther/history.htm. To learn how to use it, try http://where.com/scott.net/ asl/abc.html and http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm.
