Best Answer

ASL is the abbreviation for American Sign Language, a type of sign language used in the United States to help deaf and hard-of-hearing persons communicate. It is based on French Sign Language. It is not the same thing as "signed English" and requires a specialized degree (SLI- Sign Language Interpreter) in order to be certified to translate. ASL is fun to learn and easy to teach to young infants (approx 10 months and up), whether deaf or hearing, and can help ease frustrations while the child is learning to communicate.

alternate meanings:

For internet usage, "asl" stands for "age, sex (gender), location".

Commonly used in creepy chat rooms. Typically, it is answered like this "19/m/USA"
