ASL Video Lesson: Multiple Meaning Words (Concept Words)

Multiple Meaning Words are critical in American Sign Language (ASL).  Some people may refer to them as “Concept” words.  An example of multiple meaning words would be the word, “Run”.  The sentence, “I enjoy running.” and “My nose is running.” use a totally different concept of the word, “run”.  Recently, ASLdeafined added many multiple meaning word activities to help learners of American Sign Language (ASL) to practice these important words and concepts.  If you haven’t seen these new activities yet, please login to ASLdeafined, and see for yourself.  We are sure you will like them.  If you have any ideas or suggestions for us, please let us know.  We look forward to hearing from you.
