Languages other than English (American Sign Language)

There are a lot of sites related to American Sign Language (ASL) across the Internet. In 1999, I searched up several, and began this part of the site. As I recall from graduate school, there is still quite a bit of discussion in the linguistics community about whether or not sign languages can be considered "real" languages or not. There's some good evidence on both sides, but I do tend to think that many sign languages ARE indeed "real" languages.

Try out some of these sites and make your own decision. :-)
