📙 An Asperger Dictionary of Everyday Expressions (Stuart-Hamilton, An Asperger Dictionary of Everyday Expressions) by Ian Stuart-Hamilton — free epub


I didn't really expect that the dictionaries for people with Asperger Syndrome(AS) would be published. But I don't believe the dictionary will guarantee 100% to catch the social lives of people with AS. Of course, I do see the author's intention; to help Aspies(people with Asperger Syndrome) cope more smoothly with their society. The stars which indicated social manner(1 star:unlikely to offend, 2stars:may offend, 3 stars:will always offend) is sure to help Aspies know the social convention better. Without knowing them, it can lead to a real disaster. I know it can be quite useful to remember the idiomatic and pragmatic expressions shown in this dictionary when it comes to making conversations more lively. It does satisfy English-speaking adults with AS, but falls short of the details, I suppose. After all, I could have given 5 stars to this book with more specific examples. For Non-native speakers of English with AS, it might be better to deal with What Did You Say? What Do You Mean?: An Illustrated Guide to Understanding Metaphors written by Jude Welton.
