When individual letters of a word has to be spelt out with proper nouns, etc the American Sign Language is replaced by the manual alphabet. Letters should be shown with the dominant hand and in almost all cases, with palm facing the viewer. Sign language charts have a list of several alphabets and Arabic numerical with it. All these are signed invariably with palms orienting them in different ways. For an example a closed fist denoted the alphabet A, flat hand represents the alphabet B. Letter C can be represented by keeping palm forward and thumb bent. Letter D is represented by stretching the palm flat and with index finger alone raised keeping all other finger closed.
The advantages of being able to speak more than one language are being studied in new different ways with more specific findings on how multilingualism can help people and the society. One of the key factors in globalization is multilingualism; a country that has familiarity of the languages that people spoke in the society can cater to different ideas and can give people the freedom of different political, economical and even cultural points of view. Multilingualism promotes relations amongst the different linguistic communities. However, it may not always create good harmony in the community but multilingualism helps a community socially.
