Dictionary Navigation

Hello and welcome back to ASLdeafined’s blog!

Today’s post will cover all areas regarding our Dictionary.

  1. First let’s start off where to find this feature. On our website, go to the home page and select the tab, Dictionary.
  • Once that tab is selected you will see a search page with “ASL Dictionary” on the cover with a search bar. Once you have decided on what word you would like to search, go ahead and type it into the search bar, then click the search icon.
  • Once you have clicked on the search icon, all word variations and synonyms will pop up as potential options. For our example, we selected the word “Hearing” and typed that into the search bar. From our selected word, multiple variations and synonyms appeared, including: Court Case, Hear (Twice), Hearing (Three Times), Hearing Aids, Hearing Dogs, Hearing Loss, Trial, and Tribunal. Words that appear more than once are the amount of ways that the word can be signed differently.
  • Once you have selected the option you are looking for, go ahead and click on it. For our example, we have selected the first option of the word “Hear.” Also, keep in mind for the “Add to Favorites” icon in the upper right-hand corner, If you would like to move this selected word into a special folder, just click on the plus sign and all favorite words will accumulate to one folder for personal use on your dashboard.
  • Above, you will see the options at the bottom, upper left, and upper right of the box that provide more specific details. The video allows you to select a slower pace of the video to fully see the handshape, hand location on person demonstrating, hand movement, and facial expression of the person demonstrating the vocabulary word.

Bottom of the box:

  • Term: Hear
  • Synonyms: Listen
  • Variations:

Upper left of the box:

  • Add to My Vocabulary: Similar to the “Add to Favorites” icon, If you would like to move this selected word into a personal vocabulary folder, just click on the “Add to My Vocabulary” link and all vocabulary words will accumulate to one folder for personal use on your dashboard.

Upper right of the box:

  • Handshape Bent 3: This is identifying words by their handshapes
  • If the word you are trying to search does not appear, you can submit a “Dictionary Request.” You can use the form to request that we add it to our dictionary. Fill in our “Word to Add” box and write a sentence or definition of the word to give us context, so we can properly sign your word in the sentence box given. Once you request a word that we don’t have, your requested word will show up on your dashboard as “requested”.  Once we videotape your word, it will show up on your Dashboard as “completed”. 
  • And finally, it is here! Yes, it is here. We are now in both in the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Just search up ASLdeafined and download! You now have the luxury of accessing 16,000 + video dictionary, learn and review new  lessons, and create your favorite word list from the palm of your hands. Download our APP to practice your words on the go!

James Burke was a boxer from England in the 19th century, and was also completely deaf. At a whopping six-foot two-inches tall and two-hundred pounds he trained near the River Thames and was feared by opponents.

And no wonder! In 1833 he spared with Irish boxer Simon Byrne in the English Heavyweight Championships and finally winning after just over three hours. Three days later Byrne died of his injuries and Burke was thought to be at fault. He was ultimately acquitted of the crime, but was not given the championship belt over the ordeal. 

After failing to find new competition in England he traveled to the United States, eventually sparring with the new Irish champion Sam O’Rourke in 1937. Bad luck seemed to follow Burke and this match was no different: After his victory over O’Rourke in the third round he was forced to flee on horseback from an angry mob.

Derrick Coleman – NFL Photos

Fullback Derrick Coleman signed with the Arizona Cardinals in 2018. Coleman has been deaf since he was three years old and played for UCLA in college. In addition to the Cardinals, Coleman has played for the Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks. He even went to the Superbowl with the Seahawks (2015) and has starred in a Duracell comercial, which featured his hearing aids.

Kenny Walker – NFL Photos

He’s also not the only NFL player from the Deaf World: In the 90s there was Kenny Walker, who became deaf after a fight with meningitis. He signed with the Denver Broncos in 1991 and was a regular on the field, starting in all but four games that season. Walker then played three season in the Canadian Football League before his stint as an assistant coach for Gallaudet University!

Bonnie Sloan – APSU Athletics

But who’s the original, the guy who started it all? The credit goes to Bonnie Sloan, who played for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1973 as a defensive tackle! Unfortunately his fame was short-lived due to a knee injury that ultimately inhibited him from playing another season, but his inspiration lives on in Deaf athletes around the country. These three football players remind us that not only can the deaf do anything but they can do it well!
