This 3nd EDITION of volume 2 in a series of Auslan (Australian Sign Language) Dictionaries for children, released in April 2016. This edition includes over 615 signs (up from 320 in the previous edition), and upgrades old illustrations and clipart to photos, and more clear easy to follow sign illustrations; while retailing descriptions of sign performance, state usage info (now represented by coloured maps of Australia) and hints to help you remember signs.
