Difference between ASL,ESL, & PSE.<br />ASL<br />ESL/ SEE (Signed Exact English)<br />Signed Exact English<br />developed by hearing educators for teaching English language in school settings. These systems use English word order.<br />Best used for educational purposes.<br />Usually encouraged<br />communicating to help deaf people <br />an actual language with its own vocabulary, grammar, and syntax. The "sentence" structure is not the same as spoken/written English.<br />Faster to communicate<br />Little confusing if you’re new to it. <br />PSE: Pidgin (NOT "pigeon", smile) A "contact" language that bridges communication between ASL and SEE users. This form of communication varies on the sign language continuum. If you picture strict SEE on the far left point of a line, and pure ASL on the far right point, PSE fills the whole range in between. Some users have a higher percentage SEE, some have a higher percentage ASL. Mixes some English word order with some ASL signs and classifiers. <br />
