• 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. I am joining this site because an ASL forum sounds great, and I have a lot of questions which are difficult to answer. I bet it would also be a great place to practice! I am pretty new to signing. As a young kid I knew some because of my aunt, but that was a while ago. I look forward to meeting and chatting with all of you.
    • Hello I am Chalyse and I am learning ASL because I would like to be able to communicate with Deaf/Hearing impaired. I would like for it to become my second language as well. I know my ABCs pretty well although a few letters still get me and I am learning basic words. Nothing is more helpful though then being able to have others who you can communicate with as well and be able to help you better improve.
