Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for ASL interpreters. It shows the signs for sex and sex related vocabulary in a tactful way.The book also shows some varations of signs that are found in different parts of the country,showing if it is a sign that men and woman both use or not. I found this book helpful in learning sex related vocabulary and encourage it to people who are studying to be interpreters or interpreters who are not yet fluent with this kind of vocabulary.

Format: Paperback
Woodward has done an excellent job of researching ASL vocabulary in this book and in his other work, <Signs of Drug Use>. He provides very useful detail about how signs are used, as well as very interesting insights into Deaf culture and ASL structure in general. I wish he would write a general textbook for beginners learning ASL done in the style of these books, as most textbooks provide little help as far as regional and socioeconomic differences in ASL.

I work in the medical field and very often the Deaf people I come in contact with do not use just the perfect grammar ASL that we are taught in most books just like most of us do not speak in proper grammatical English. Knowing the various ways people sign/say that same things is important to know. For example, there is a page with 6 different signs for intercourse, each which would make sense to see from different people. I have found this book to be incredibly useful as there are many things in there that I would not of found anywhere else.

This book is being used as a teaching tool in the classroom to familiarize the students with signs that are not found in a lot of the sign language books (As a Minister, this needed).

I purchased this book again, as I loaned out my first copy, as a reference book for my library. Good for anyone who plans to interpret.
