    This video is extremely useful while students are working for ASL language acquisition including critical nonmanual elements required for native proficiency. We need more materials in ASL!

    This title reviews mouth morphemes with sample sentences for enhanced understanding. It is foundational knowledge not fully covered in many ASL curriculums.
