URL for sign language Jun 25, 2003

Try the following
http://www.masterstech-home.com/ASLDict.html
where you will find all the words you want in American Sign Language. There are of course other sign language systems, but of you want some other specific one, you can probably find it using Google.

Which sign language? Jun 26, 2003

As Jack points out, there are different sign languages for different regional variants of English (British, Irish, American, Australian, etc.). This is because sign language on the whole developed as a "natural" language within deaf communities.
I believe an artificial "international" language has also been devised.

There is a good collection of links in the About.com pages on Deafness: http://deafness.about.com/cs/internationalsign/
