    About the Author
    ----------------

    Martin L. A. Sternberg, Ed.D., is a native New Yorker. Deaf since the age of seven, he has spent most of his career
    working with deaf people. The idea for this book came from Dr. Elizabeth Peet, Dr. Sternberg's sign language teacher at
    Gallaudet University (for the deaf), in Washington, DC. Dr. Sternberg kept Dr. Peet's ideas and methods, but expanded
    the work greatly. Early work on the project received a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Health, Education and
    Welfare to New York University, the sponsoring institution. A graduate of the City College of New York, American
    University, and New York University, Dr. Sternberg has enjoyed a distinguished career as a teacher at Gallaudet, New
    York, Hofstra, and Adelphi Universities. HE is currently chairman of the board of trustees of Lexington School for the
    Deaf and Lexington Center for the Deaf. He is the author of four ASL dictionaries and a Codies Award-winning CD-ROM, all
    published by HarperCollins. He also received Emmy and Peabody nominations for his ASL series by the NBC network,
    "Speaking With Your Hands," as well as medals at various international film and television festivals.
