• ASL 1 Handed Fingerspelling Alphabet

    Fingerspelling is a way of spelling words using hand movements. The fingerspelling manual alphabet is used in sign language to spell out names of people and places for which there is not a sign. Fingerspelling can also be used to spell words for signs that the signer does not know the sign for, or to clarify a sign that is not known by the person reading the signer. Fingerspelling signs are often also incorporated into other ASL signs.

    American Sign Language (ASL) uses the one-handed alphabet however some other sign languages use the two-handed alphabet.

    • Hello everyone, I'm currently in my third semester of learning ASL. My interest in deaf culture attracted me to the language, and I engage with the community in my town as much as possible. I've also enjoyed learning about the history, and I'm considering on furthering my education to a master's in applied linguistics. The most rewarding experience I've had thus far is being able to communicate and hold a conversation with my previous instructor (who is deaf) without needing to write anything out.   I live in a small college environment, so naturally, there aren't many opportunities to sign, but if anyone's interested in having a conversation, let me know!
    • Hey! I just completed that TV series. I picked up lots of signs too!
    • Hey! I am Sneha, International student pursuing my Masters in USA. I want to learn sign language and I have learnt few signs in the past few days. I would like to further improve my signing by communicating with people that share the same interest. Best way to learn is through practice with peers. So here I am, looking forward to be fluent in ASL. It would be helpful if someone can guide me and become friends along the process.
