This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
This book is intended primarily for parents but will also be of interest to teachers and related professionals. The book addresses both practical and theoretical issues related to the development and education of deaf children. It considers these areas largely from a sign bilingual perspective.
