Fascinating, wide-ranging study by expert on the subject describes and illustrates signs used for specific words — "antelope," "brave," "trade," "yes," — for phrases, sentences and even dialogues. Scores of diagrams show precise movements of body and hands for signing. Of great interest to students of linguistics and Native American culture.
