Hillsboro, OR, November 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Butte Publications, Inc.’s Featured Title for November is "The Picture Plus Dictionary" by Virginia McKinney. For the entire month, the book is offered at 20% off when purchased online.
"The Picture Plus Dictionary" showcases a basic functional vocabulary essential for the development of reading skills and face-to-face signed and/or spoken language. With more than 4,500 illustrations and sign drawings, this new take on the dictionary replaces the traditional word/picture and word/sign format found in most picture and sign language dictionaries. Moreover, readers will find a meaningful contextual setting for the included words and phrases that cover a wide range of subjects relating to daily life.
Organized in English word order, each word is spelled and its proper part of speech is clearly identified. Each word is then accompanied by an illustration of its sign and an English sentence in which the word is used. Designed from 30 years of experience in education of deaf students, this dictionary is truly one of a kind.
The dictionary was developed by McKinney after many years of experience to assist the deaf, hard of hearing, and second language learners to master the use of a basic vocabulary as used in connected language services. Many signs have an obvious conceptual base, and the sign drawings were made to enhance comprehension for all learners. "The Picture Plus Dictionary" is available in the Butte Publications, Inc. store online: http://www.buttepublications.com/index.php/our-online-catalog/dictionaries#ppd
